Top Highlights

“It is crucial that parents be vigilant. One duty of a shepherd at home is to be on the alert for wolves that could harm our children.” (source)

“The Lord knew what he was doing when he put the two of you together, too. The point is that if you are to complement one another in the tasks of life, you are going to need to know one another. Have you paid attention and yielded to your spouse’s strengths? Have you been honest about your own weaknesses?” (source)

“You should be the CEO (chief encouragement officer) of your family and your wife’s number-one cheerleader.” (source)

“Second, commit yourself to building up your children with your words. Remember Paul’s admonition, cited earlier” (source)

“Third, commit yourself to building up your wife with your words.” (source)
