Mornings With God

and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and will be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? — Matt 19:5 NET

One of the best ways we can bless the world is to make our own home sweet and happy. If we can restore one little spot of earth into Edenic happiness we have done something toward the regaining of the lost Paradise.

It begins in marriage. For anything so sacred, the choice should be made deliberately and wisely. Loyalty in the marriage relation is an essential of home happiness. “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

This word of Christ is too easily and too often disregarded. It is not God’s will that any who are joined in marriage should be separated. It is meant to be till death.

Jesus loved little children and the children loved Him. When the disciples, misunderstanding their Master, thought it was kindness to Him to keep the babies away, He rebuked them sharply. “Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto Me.”

Since children are so dear to Christ, the home where little children are is especially dear to Him.
