No Strife = A Happy Family
One of the commitments that a happy family will make is to learn how to avoid strife.
James 3:16 says: “For where envy and strife exist, there will be confusion and every evil work.”
One day while our four children were in the middle of some loud disagreement, I just went and opened the front door to our home and said to the kids, “OK, do you all want to just open our house up to confusion, strife and every evil work? When we can’t get along, it’s just like saying ‘come on in’ to confusion and those evil things”
Let’s decide today that our home will be free from strife. Make a commitment to let your words be filled with grace and speak good things to everyone in your family.
Strife will cease and the peace of God will begin to fill our homes.
