My mother made certain that I studied my Sunday School lesson on Saturday evenings. She saw to it that I made each choir practice and dressed in starched shirt and pants, and a jacket and tie on Sundays. She made sure that she communicated with the public school teachers and school officials so that I comported myself properly and she went over my report card with a fine-toothed comb wanting to know why certain grades were not up where she thought they should be. My mother doctored every fever, ache and ailment with the remedies her mother had taught her. As you can see from the partial list I just made, I most definitely was not neglected. Thanks mother! ”Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;” (Eph.6:2, KJV)
Have you watched the news lately? There seem to be squabbles and disagreement at every level of government, between nations, races and economic strata. There must be a place where men and women, boys and girls can go and experience the opposite of the stress of such an atmosphere. May your home be a place of agreement, where squabbles and disagreement can’t find dwelling places. May it be the place of “where two or three are gathered in my Name” (Matt.18:20) becomes the place of “all things are possible” (Mk.9:23). (Ps.128:3, GNB) “Your wife will be like a fruitful vine in your home, and your children will be like young olive trees around your table.” We are praying you discover daily that your home is a place of productive agreement.
