A little boy named Danny lived with his family in a trailer. One day someone asked him, “Don’t

you wish you had a real home?” Danny’ reply was wise beyond his years. He said, “We have a real home. We just don’t have a house to put it in.” A house and a home are very different. A house is just a physical structure, made perhaps of brick or wood or stone. It can be large or small. It may not even have persons inside. If a house does include persons, their relationships may lack love or commitment. By contrast, a home is a haven of shelter, acceptance, and unconditional love. It includes at least one person. In a home, each person’s value is unlimited, and the mutual commitment is eternal. Any decent contractor can construct a house. But only God can build a home.
