Godly Home

A home can be a godly one or an ungodly one depending on who is in charge, the one in control and the one ruling and directing the affairs of the home. Where Jesus is in charge, then it will be a godly home. All things will be done in the fear of God. These are God’s expectations from our homes. In fact, godly and healthy homes are God’s plan and purpose for all people.
