Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me,
put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Living creatively for Christ in the home is the acid test for any Christian man or woman. It is far easier to live an excellent life among your friends, when you are putting your best foot forward and are conscious of public opinion, than it is to live for Christ in your home. Your own family circle knows whether Christ lives in you and through you. If you are a true Christian, you will not give way at home to bad temper, impatience, fault-finding, sarcasm, unkindness, suspicion, selfishness, or laziness. Instead, you will reveal through your daily life the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, and all the other Christian virtues which form a Christ-like personality.
My Father and my God, Help me with my family members to show them Your love. May I live so close to You that Your love will flow through me to them that they might see You in me. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
