Create a Home Altar

Perhaps God is holding out an opportunity for each of our homes to become a spiritual sanctuary where we can meet God with each other. This sanctuary is sometimes called a family altar. It can be simply done by gathering materials to be used for daily time with God.

What sorts of things? A Bible, prayer books, perhaps a cross, a picture of Christ or a picture representing the Trinity. If you have young children, consider a Bible story book or a battery-powered lantern that allows younger kids to fully participate. You may wish to change-up the look of your family altar as the seasons change or to reflect the church year.

Lighting a candle to signify the beginning of your time with the Lord can be helpful.

There are no hard and fast rules for creating a home altar. Seeing one in your home may serve as a good reminder to spend some time each day in His Word.
