By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with precious and beautiful treasures. (Proverbs 24:3-4)
At the root of every broken relationship is a spiritual ailment that must be healed before that relationship can be made whole. Secular psychologists and marriage counselors exacerbate this spiritual malady by phychological means, when it needs a spiritual cure. Jesus is the Great Physician, forgiving our sins and healing all of our spiritual disorders. The Bible declares that wisdom, understanding and knowledge are the tools He offers to us, through His word to build (on Christ), to fill (with children) and to maintain (by love) a happy and successful home.
For people who seek the greater blessings upon their relationships at home and with family, God's Word and the Lord's leadership hold the keys to wisdom, understanding and knowledge. A godly home is one of trust and assurance. It is peaceful, and is a home where the true unity of marriage grows to a gorgeous maturity.
The world's institutions of learning don't teach wisdom; only worldly knowledge. True wisdom comes from God. Only He can open the doors to understanding the truths we need to make our house a fortress of love and understanding; to make our house a home.
Lord grant us the wisdom to love each other well, and offer others the grace and forgiveness you have given us, beginning with those who are closest to us, amen.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
