It did not come about by accident, and it was not the invention of mankind. It was planned and started by God. Genesis 1:26-28; 2:18-25. FAMILY - A man and woman, who have married and are living together; children m,a~" or may not be present yet. HOME - A family living together happily. CHRISTIAN HOME - A family whose relationship with God is Christ-like. RECIPE FOR A HAPPY HOME YOU need one husband and one wife. Then add one or more children to" suit yourself. Next, cream in one cup of love until it is fluffy and mellow. Add one-half cup of tears and hardships a nd stir gently. Add one cup of joy and whip until smooth. Now add one teaspoon of thoughtfulness, tenderness, and sympathy. Stir in slowly one cup of ambition. Finally add two generous cups of God's word and stir gently. Bake in a moderate oven. Top with kindness. Serve this recipe repeatedly. SOME INFLUENCES YOUR HOME MAY NEED CHILDREN. Ephesians 6:1-3; Col. 3:20; Proverbs 22:'6; Deut. 4:9. WIVES -- Ephesians 5:22,24; I Peter 3:1-5; I Corinthians 14:34-35. HUSBANDS - Ephesians 5:23-29; Col. 3:19; I Peter 3:7; I Corinthians 7:3- 5. What kind of family do YOU want? The Bible offers all of us a powerful' insight into what makes a genuine family, ft begins when you learn to care for others as God cares for you. So~e healthy family units have fallen into bad habits, which allows drifting. Family can be restored by communicating with each other and more importantly God Ephesians 4:25-32. Please send your questions to comments to: Bible Corner Bible Corner Box 661 Box 493 Union, WV 24983 Lewisburg, WV 24901 By PASTOR M. EARL McGUFFEY With April 15 still fresh on our minds it is good to know that the government can not tax all of our possessions. In fact, we have many blessings which are not taxable. It would be good for us, after counting our taxes, to count our blessings and thank God. Especially if you have trusted Christ as your Savior you have eternal riches reserved in heaven "where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal." (Matt. 6:20) I recently read an interesting account about a tax auditor who came many years ago to a poor servant of the Lord to determine the amount of taxes he would have to pay. "What property do you possess?" asked the auditor. "1 am very wealthy," replied the Christian. "List your possessions, please," the auditor instructed. "First, I have everlasting life (Jn.3:16). Second, I have a mansion in heaven (Jn. 14:2). Third, I have peace that passes understanding (Phil. 4:7). Fourth, I have joy unspeakable (I Pet. 1:8). Fifth, I have divine love that never fails (I Car. 13:8). Sixth, I have a faithful wife (Pray. 31:10). Seventh, I have healthy, happy, obedient children (Ex. 20:12). Eighth, t have true, loyal friends (Pray.18:24). Ninth, I have a Savior, Jesus Christ, who supplies all my nee-l" (Phil. 4:19). The tax auditor closed his book and said, "Truly you are a very rich man, but our property is not subject to taxation!" My firend, how many riches do you have that are not taxable? Do you have eternal life, through faith in Jesus Christ? Don't spend your life concentrating on material riches which must all be left behind when you die. Remember what God said in Proverbs 13:7, "There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing." And in Proverbs 11:4 we read, "Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death." Gospel sing at Pentecostal Church The Community Pentecostal Holiness Church of Brush Road in Vago will be having a gospel sing, May 16th at 7:00 p.m. at the church.
