Have you ever seen a triangle? That’s too basic a question to ask, I know. We all, at one point in time in our lives have seen a triangle. Let me help you refresh you memory if per adventure the shape of a triangle has skipped your mind.
The home ought to take the shape of a triangle. In the home God dwells, that is how it is, where God is a the top, and the husband and wife are at both ends of the base. This triangle is held together by love; the love of the husband and wife that flows towards God, and the one that flows from God to the couple. This triangle is a highly concentrated love zone. Right inside that triangle is the child(ren) of the home who are beneficiaries of the love that flows from all sides.
The best gift parents can give to their child(ren) is loving God, and loving each other deeply. The love you both share as couples is what flows to your children. It is like the oil that flows from Aaron’s head to his skirt. If there’s no oil of love at the top (the one between the couple), there is nothing to flow to the skirt (children).The best gift parents can give to their child(ren) is loving God, and loving each other deeply.

There’s a sense of safety, trust, and warmth the children feel when they know that their parents so much love each other. The percentage of the emotional love tank is on a good gauge. If the opposite is the case i.e where the children do not see any kind of love and affection between their parents, it sends a signal to the children that something is amiss.
If this goes on for long, the children feel insecure, and they’ll always want to stay out of the home where they think they can find love, than stay in the home where there is no love.
I know many parents will not want to intentionally make their children feel insecure for lack of love towards their spouse. However, they find themselves in this web. Rejoice today because there is a solution. It begins with a relationship with Jesus. From here, the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts, He shows us how best to love our spouse and the love flows freely to the children keeping them secure in the triangle. Will you come to Him today? Let Him fill your heart with love.
Jesus at the center makes the home godly and happy.
