“When home is ruled according to God’s word, angels might be asked to stay with us, and they would not find themselves out of their element.” Charles Spurgeon
When I think about this quote it brings a smile to my face. I envision my family sitting around a fireplace telling stories under blankets while sipping mugs of homemade hot cocoa. It’s so Norman Rockwell, I know. But the truth is that we don’t have a fireplace and the kids would find some way to pick on each other, interrupting the story, while I am scolding the hot cocoa on the stove. And yet, I am inspired to continue in our training. As parents we have to be obedient and consistently teach our children what is right and wrong. Parents have no greater calling than to diligently teach their children according to God’s word.
