HOME SWEET, NOT HOME SWEAT.

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*HOME SWEET, NOT HOME SWEAT.*


*Scripture Treasure.*

Prov 27:3 *A stone is heavy and sand is a burden, but aggravation from a fool outweighs them both.*


*Insight and Highlight.*

Home sweet home, not home, sweat home.


*Scripture Commentaries.*

In nations over the world, children, mothers, and fathers are celebrated.

In nations where these are celebrated, the celebration serves as moments of appreciation and recognition of the role they play in our homes and society.

There are, however, growing problems.

There is violence in the home.

The home has become a house.

A home is a friendly habitation, whereas a house, here, is a habitation without affection.

We must not turn the home to a sweat home. At this point, it becomes a place of no affection and only good for habitation.

ln some of our homes, parents can not talk without disagreeable and irreconcilable arguments.

Prov 27:3 tells us that as heavy a stone and burdensome a pile of sand are, their weights are nothing compared to provocations and violence in homes.

How you react to one another will determine how self controlled we are.

Our negative reactions to what we do to ourselves, as painful as they may be, increase our pain and sufferings if we fail to seek peaceful reconciliation through self-control.

We hurt ourselves, but we will hurt ourselves more if we do not exercise reasonable and wise control.

So we may look justified to react angrily to a cruel, wrathful, and unjustifiable word aimed at us (as people would expect), but God expects you to handle the situation with wisdom.

Proverbs 29:11 recommends calmness when under provocation:

*Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back.*

In our homes, let us provoke ourselves to love, Heb 10:24 *And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works.*

Col 3:15 says *And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.*

Prov 27:3 tells us how cruel provocations can be.

You do not have to say anything during a heated provocation. You can go away from it and revisit when or if calm is restored.

Becareful of wild reactions.


*Remorse corner.*

How do you handle disagreement in your home, and how are they resolved?


*Call to Word action.*

Proverbs 25:28 *Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who does not control his temper.*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

Be gentle with one another.

Proverbs 12:16  *A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted.*


*Prayer*

Lord, make our homes, peaceful abodes in Jesus name.


Good morning and a happy Father's Day to all fathers.


Be blessed as you come into His presence.


God bless you.
