Kindness In The Home
Do you know where we need to be kind the most? In our homes. Why is it that sometimes we are the most unkind to those we love the best? The most cutting remarks sometimes occur in the home. Indeed, there are many marriages that could be saved by a little gentleness.
Emerson said, “Courtesy is made up of little sacrifices.” If you are a husband, let me give an application for today. Men are to be the leader of the home. And one of the marks of leadership is gentleness. 2 Timothy 2:24
says: “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient.”
The psalmist said of the Lord, “Thou hast also given me the shield of Thy salvation: and Thy gentleness hath made me great.” (2 Samuel 22:36
Are you a mother and want your children to be great? Be gentle. They will grow and blossom with a father and mother who are gentle. The Bible says of a wife: “She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness” (Proverbs 31:26
). Your children need this kindness perhaps more than anything else.
says, “Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering.”
