“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might . . .” —Ecclesiastes 9:10. One of the facets of family life is that there is no lack of responsibility for getting things done around the home. Dad and Mom bear most of those responsibilities. But what about you? Are there some chores in your home that you are capable of doing?
Jesus was a young man when He said, “Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?” —Luke 2:49. Of course, this was spiritual business, but Jesus also worked in a carpenter shop like Joseph, and no doubt helped around the home.
The Bible also says, “He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame,” —Proverbs 10:5. Also, “A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother,” —Proverbs 10:1. We see, therefore, that if we work to help our parents, we are not only making our parents glad, but we are also following the example of our Lord Jesus. By sharing in many of the responsibilities around your home, you will make both your parents and your Lord happy.

We just started a group in our area. I love the bond that the girls are creating as well as with the mothers, as we individually and corporately seek Christ.
