The scripture in today’s attached devotional shows what God expects from
each member of the family and the quotation shows what the result will
be if God’s commandments are kept – your home will be a foretaste of
heaven! May God help you to make it so. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Colossians 3:18-21 (ESV)
18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. 20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. 21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
“When home life is ruled according to God’s Word, angels might be asked to stay with us, and they would not find themselves out of their element.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon in Sifted Silver: A Treasury of Quotations for Christians compiled by John Blanchard, (Durham, England: Evangelical Press, 1995), p. 99]
