Daily – Family rules

September 22, 2016

We just bought ourselves a lovely decoration for our home. When we first saw it at the store we realised very quickly that it corresponds very well with our values.

Do you agree with every single one of them or are there some that you would include or exclude from the rules? Let’s have a discussion of values and life details  🙂

      Difficult to pick one but keep your promises & say always please and thank you are very very important to me 🙂
      And you?

    Always tell the truth. My favorite. They are all important but that one really is revealed in the others. If you say please and thank you or help others even, it may not be the truth but instead a habit one gets into and if its insincere then its not truth. Or any of the others as well. Truth is the glue to who you are in everything you do. Truth.

      Truth is really important and I agree.. Difficult just pick one. I think to keep your words (promises) is very important too 🙂

    Work hard is a value that pays eternally; it’s more important than money. Sharing is wonderful, but it really depends on what your sharing, and the impact it will have.

    I really like that list. When I was in fifth grade my teacher, Mr. Bentley, had a sign with the “Golden Rule” written out on his wall, near the clock. It covers it all. It can be found in Matthew 7:12

    Matthew 7:12 New International Version (NIV)

    12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

    And there again Roberta rocks ☺

    I like “Say your Prayers”and “Use Kind Words”… sometimes, we’re more kind to people outside our home. I think we should also be kind if not more kind to family. 🙂

    I would say that all of the rules I’ve taught my children, however, the only thing different for my family is that prayer is in the number one position of our rules. Thanks for sharing!

    Looks like we’re on the same page with our views on ‘values’ this week Roberta. I LOVE your new artwork – great values to follow!

    I agree with them Roberta.

    nice. I’ll find me one too. I wont change or remove anything. I’ll probably want to reorganize it so that honesty will be at the very top. In my opinion, it is the hardest but most important value.

    I love this sign, Roberta! I agree with all of it…except sharing chocolate😉 I have to really like someone in order to do that. I’m kidding!

    Yes they all apply to us as well. Would love one myself.
