What essentially makes the difference between homes is the kind of words that flow in that one room, flat, duplex or mansion. It is either they are words that build up or tear down. Many a times, people do not realize this, but it determines the atmosphere in their homes. Your character status is responsible for the kind of words that flow in your home. The kind of words that flow from you is therefore a test of sound character. Husbands and wives must realize this, and ensure they imbibe sound character strengths in their homes.

At the end of the day, what brings true joy and peace in homes is not how much money there is; you can’t have all the money, but how much hope, love, kindness, sincerity, transparency, planning together, frank but respectful talks, and laughter there is. Couples must be very deliberate about the kinds of words that flow in their home because they create the atmosphere. See it like the air your breathe, no one wants to breathe toxic air. So if you don’t want to breathe toxic air in your home, then don’t speak toxic words. The nation is a combination of homes, and everyone carries the atmosphere from their homes to the nation. Imagine a unified atmosphere of love and joy in the nation!

Raising Defenders of Integrity
As stakeholders in building a great nation through the potent tool of building solid homes, we must be poised to raise Defenders of Integrity. We must raise a citizenry that will stand up right. Everyone is intrinsically made right; that is why we deeply love to see things right. For example, we ordinarily do not like to see dents on a car, dirts on the street or dirty clothes on someone. Therefore, if we are made right then why do we allow a nation where things are evidently not right? It must have to do with nurturing. And this takes place at home.

So if the right atmosphere is created, the right nurture will be achieved. The converse is also true, which sadly enough, seems to be the order of the day in the nation. Parents, as custodians of homes, you should be deliberate about nurturing the children. To nurture requires time; so anything that prevents both parents from having quality time with their children should be adjusted. Parents, please find a way around it because your children would not have all the time to stay with you. Make children’s time with you count to nurturing them well so they can grow to become Defenders of Integrity.

Your Home Matters
Your home matters and can make a big difference. Do all you can to improve your economic status but please let it not be at the expense of sound character. Imagine your home producing a world changer like Nelson Mandela! Then you can see the power of your home and so be focused on raising your children right. The way the words you speak matter at home, so do they matter in the nation. Let us use our homes as platforms to rebuild our nation. So help us God!
