 It will not do to be a saint abroad--and a devil at home!

It will not do to be a saint abroad--and a devil at home!

(Charles Spurgeon)

There is a great importance in the way in which a man lives in his house. It will not do to be a saint abroad--and a devil at home! There are some of that kind. They are wonderfully sweet at a prayer meeting--but they are dreadfully sour to their wives and children. This will never do!

Every genuine believer should say, and mean it, "I will walk within my house with a perfect heart." It is in the home, that we get the truest proof of godliness.

"What sort of a man is he?" said one to George Whitefield--and Whitefield answered, "I cannot say, for I never lived with him."

That is the way to test a man--to live with him.

Spurgeon & Whitefield -- a dynamic duo indeed!

Practical wisdom which needs to be considered.

Thanks for posting this.

Thank you sister, this is very good and sometime we need to continue to check ourselves on, is the reality of God in our home life.
