In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. We’re constantly juggling multiple tasks, scrolling through our phones, and planning for the future. But amidst all the chaos, it’s crucial for Kingdom minded families to remember the importance of being present – both with God and with our loved ones. The phrase “Be One Place Well” resonates deeply with the idea of being fully present and engaged in the moment. Instead of spreading ourselves thin by trying to do everything at once, let’s focus on being fully present in whatever we’re doing – whether it’s spending time with our family, worshiping God, or serving others.

Colossians 3:23 (NIV)

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.

So, What… for This Week?

  • Prioritize Family Time: Set aside dedicated time each day to spend quality time with your family without distractions. Whether it’s having a meal together, playing games, or simply talking, cherish these moments and be fully present with your loved ones.
  • Create Technology-Free Zones: Designate certain areas or times in your home where technology is not allowed, allowing for uninterrupted family bonding. Put away phones, tablets, and other gadgets during family dinners or bedtime routines to foster deeper connections and conversations.
  • Practice Gratitude and Appreciation: Take time each day to express gratitude for the blessings of family and the moments you share together. Cultivate an atmosphere of love, encouragement, and appreciation within your family, affirming each other’s value and worth.
