This is a tremendously important message. I did not have a home such as this. My parents were not saved. They did not teach me Christian principles. They divorced when I was 11. So much agony and pain could be avoided if you apply today’s devotion.
The making of a beautiful and happy home!
A true home is one of the most sacred of places.
It is a sanctuary into which men flee from the world’s perils and alarms.
It is a resting-place to which, at close of day–the weary retire to gather new strength for the battle and toils of tomorrow.
It is the place . . .
where love learns its lessons,
where life is schooled into discipline and strength,
where character is molded.
Few things we can do in this world are so well worth doing–as the making of a beautiful and happy home! He who does this–builds a sanctuary for God, and opens a fountain of blessing for men.
Far more than we know–do the strength and beauty of our lives depend upon the home in which we dwell. He who goes forth in the morning from a happy, loving, prayerful home–into the world’s strife, temptation, struggle, and duty–is strongly inspired for noble and victorious living.
The children who are brought up in a true home–go out trained and equipped for life’s battles and tasks–carrying a secret of strength in their hearts, which will make them brave and loyal to God, and will keep them pure in the world’s severest temptations!
Please apply these principles.
