Dominion over limited space

A Better Home

Have you sometimes thought you would be happier if you only had the means for a larger, better home? Whether the need seems urgent for more space or for better family relationships, the primary need may be for a larger sense of what home really is. To realize that home is basically spiritual is to have at hand all the means necessary to begin to experience real home improvement.

Centuries ago Isaiah instructed the Israelites, "Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes." Isa. 54:2; But when one lives in crowded quarters and has not the funds to provide added room, how can he enlarge his place? One can always let the true meaning of home, with all the blessings it includes, expand in his consciousness. Then he will find he has gained dominion over the sense of limited space. Such was the experience of a young woman who lived in a small house with her husband, a dog, a cat, and three growing boys.
