"Better is a dry morsel and quietness than a house full of sacrifices with strife."
- Proverbs 17:1

Many homes today present the appearance of being Christian. But behind the screen there is much bickering, much strife. Perhaps the members are living together upon a competitive basis. Perhaps the life of the group is highly geared to building up a large income. Happiness is thought of in terms of a bulging bank account, a more attractive home in an exclusive residential area, or an expensive car, and a higher social standing.
 
Meanwhile, high tension produces explosive nerves. The troubles in the home mount. The members draw away from one another. Even if their dreams are fulfilled, it will be at the expense of the fine art of living together and the deep satisfaction it brings.
 
Christian friends, If a home is to be genuinely happy, it must adopt as its motto which our Savior gave us: "Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness." Its unseen, but the real Head must be God, who because of the sacrificial death of His Son is our Father. His plan of living, a plan of faith, love, and service, must be the plan of our homes.
 
Love is giving for the families needs,
Love is sharing as the Spirit leads,
Love is caring when a family cries,
Love is compassion with Christlike eyes.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Love is the door through which we pass from selfishness to service.
