It is a wonderful thing to have a special place to worship in. In Exodus 25-31 and 34-39, and in 1 Kings 5-8, the building, design, and worship structure of first the Tabernacle and then the Temple of Israel are described in minute detail. Choose a particular spot in your house to hold regular family worship, and decorate it together with your children. Encourage them to use the colors red (Christ’s sacrifice), white (God’s righteousness), gold (God’s glory), and royal purple (for God’s Kingdom), and Christian symbols such as the Cross, the Lion and the Lamb, the fish (in Greek, the word for fish is an acronym for “Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior,” as well as referencing the call to be “fishers of men” in Matthew 4:19), and the lily (which represents new life and the Resurrection, as well as having been used in Solomon’s Temple). Your children may find other colors and decorations that have Scriptural connections as well. Discuss what these symbols mean in our faith, and use them to make your place of worship beautiful and spiritually meaningful.
