I started a tradition over at my other site (where I talk about the bible and money), where I would post a devotional thought on most Sundays. I then continued that practice on Fat Guy Skinny Wallet, and I hope to keep posting devotion messages here.
They will either be based on my own personal study, or from another source.
Today we are reminded of the necessity of showing love at home, by J. R. Miller (courtesy of Grace Gems):
Keep the lamp of love shining day after day . . .
amid the many home cares and duties,
amid the criticisms, sarcasms, and thoughtlessness of others,
amid the thousand little irritations and arguments of home life
–which tend to break peace and disrupt a sweet temper.
Let your love at home be of the kind that never fails. Wherever else, far away or near, you pour the bright beams of your Christian love–be sure that you brighten your own home. No goodness and gentleness outside the home, will atone for lack of love at home.
“Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.” 1 Peter 3:8
