In a Christian home, we must minister to each other. A Christian husband must minister to his wife
and help “beautify her” in the Lord. A Christian wife must encourage her husband and help him grow
strong in the Lord. Spouses must take time to be with each other.
Christian workers and church officers who get too busy running around solving other people’s
problems may end up creating problems of their own at home. One survey revealed that the average
husband and wife had thirty-seven minutes a week together in actual communication! Is it any wonder
that marriages fall apart after the children grow up and leave home? The husband and wife are left
alone—to live with strangers!
Parents and children must share burdens and blessings and seek to maintain an atmosphere of spiritual
excitement and growth in the home. If there are unsaved people in the home, they will be won to
Christ more by what they see in our lives and relationships than by what they hear in our witness.
Remember this: “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ”
(Galatians 6:2, NIV).
Also: Ephesians 5:21-6:4.
Action assignment: Name five things parents and children can do to make a happy home. Talk to
God about how you can help make your home happier.
