The Light Daily Devotional – Charity Begins at Home
Focus: Charity Begins at Home
WORD FOR TODAY
You don’t have the right to show love, care, and bless people if you have not done the same to the people in your household. Hypocrisy is identified when men in the outside world are praising you and your family cannot feel your impact!
“If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” 1Timothy 5:8 NIV
Everything known about you by the outside world is fake if the same is not known at home. The benchmark of your spirituality is the view of those who know you intimately. You will be deceiving yourself when you think that God is happy with you when your wife/husband, children, or father/mother is not happy with you.
When you don’t take care of your children, wife/husband, father/mother; whatever you give God or so-called people of God becomes an abomination. Your faith in God is at first to make you a good person in your family, then to your neighbors before the outside world. When you are good at home you will surely be good to the outside world. Do not fail in your primary responsibility at home even as you bless your world with your existence!
+ What is your personality before men at home?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to be alive with my responsibilities in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
Emphasis: Your personality at home is your real personality; any charity that does not take its root from home is dangerous and not acceptable to God!
Have a Lovely Week Ahead!
