Prov 17:1 Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.
It cracks me up to see all those single people wishing they were married and all the married people wishing they were single! Why is this?
Fact is, people need to start considering God in that whole marriage and family equation. If a person ever needed Heaven's wisdom in anything, they'd better pay strict attention to the Spirit of God when it comes to a life's mate. Buyer beware!
I think of my blog from a few days ago (A Little or a Lot) and the peace which that man (represented by quite a few folks I have known) possessed, and I contemplate how God has a perfect plan for each of His children concerning their family life.
Indeed, God needs a much more prominent role in family life. Imagine the joy of the family where each individual seeks to please God first, then considers others ahead of themselves.
Sadly, most homes are full of strife but devoid of serenity. They have all the goodies, but little godliness. They may eat steaks and burgers, but they don't sense the presence of their unseen Guest. Regretfully, I am talking about so-called "Christian" homes. The TV seems to be the god of the home, followed by the computer, video games and other lesser gods. But please, let me just see a Bible and some people praying. Let's witness some loving people talking face to face without raising their voices in anger. Let's see selflessness replacing self-centeredness.
Otherwise, pass the croutons and give me a quiet corner!
