Living creatively for Christ in the home is the acid test for any Christian man or woman. It is far easier to live an excellent life among your friends, when you are putting your best foot forward and are conscious of public opinion, than it is to live for Christ in your home. Your own family circle knows whether Christ lives in you and through you. If you are a true Christian, you will not give way at home to bad temper, impatience, fault-finding, sarcasm, unkindness, suspicion, selfishness, or laziness. Instead, you will reveal through your daily life the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, and all the other Christian virtues which round out a Christ-like personality.

Prayer for the day

My family, Lord, knows the real me—they deserve so much more. May I live so close to You that Your love will flow through me to them.

    Today’s devotion touched me to the core. I lost my my mom, my best friend on this day, May 14, six years ago. She loved Billy Graham and even went to hear him preach when she was a teenager. The devotion today sounded like my mom…I can hear those words from her mouth to my ears. She was the most un-selfish person that I will probably ever know…especially with her family. She, like none of us was perfect…but she loved the Lord. And I know beyond any doubt she is truly living with Him in Heaven and I can’t wait to see her again one day. I love you momma.

    It is possible to fool people with Godly behavior but it is impossible to fool God. He knows our heart and mind.

    God has two dwellings,in Heaven and the other in meek and thankful heart. A godly life is a fragrance that
    draws others to CHRIST, like Dr Billy Graham! God Bless us all! amen.
