“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.” (James 3:16)
Have you ever noticed that the easiest place to remain self-centered is at home? There’s an incentive to be lovely with others, but with your family you are tempted to allow yourself more selfish privileges as if it didn’t count there.
Before I was a Christian, I was more courteous and nicer to friends than to my own family. I was more demanding and less forgiving with those dearest to me than with anyone else.
But after I made Jesus Lord of my life, I realized all that had to change.
Gloria and I began to learn through the Word how important harmony is within our family. We learned that if we wanted the power of agreemeent (see Matthews 18:19) to work in our lives, we could not allow strife in our home.
Strife drops the shield of faith, stops prayer results, and invites Satan and his cohorts into your midst. Discord is deadly. It paralyzes the power of God in your life.
Don’t allow the enemy to stop at your own front door by allowing strife in your home. If you do, you’ll be no threat to him anywhere else.
Put the power of harmony to work in your family.
