Men, don't be an atmosphere breaker. Psalm 133 1-3 says, "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; as the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life forevermore."
People can spend a lot of money on the decor of a house, and I am not opposed to this for it can help the atmosphere, even as beautiful music builds an atmosphere. However, it's very surface. To have a real true "Home, Sweet Home" atmosphere it takes fathers and others, along with their children, to be constantly filled with the love of God.
When love is flowing it creates a rich and beautiful atmosphere. Love is not sterile. It is tangible. It pulsates and throbs with unity and peace. This love is something you can actually feel. It is not physical, yet it affects the physical and expresses itself through each individual in order to bless others with acts of lovingkindnesses.
However, this atmosphere of love, this jewel of beauty, this crown of all crowns can be squelched, dampened, and grieved by thoughtless, selfish, prideful, worldly, moody, and carless individuals who have not learned how to value this precious treasure of all treasures.
Men, I believe it is very important to teach our families how to appreciate and value the atmosphere of love. There is life, laughter, and healing in the atmosphere of love. You cannot afford to be without it. We must guard against being a loving atmosphere breaker.
