“How Abundant Life Flowers”

Every time I read Susan Schaffer Macaulay’s For the Family’s Sake, I find more words to add to my Commonplace.

“Biblically, serving each other is one of the highest priorities in life.  And in God’s sight children are to have our special consideration.  Their welfare is more important than designing a new rocket or computer, for instance.  Faithfulness to a child’s life and other promises made (such as in a marriage relationship) are counted by God as reflecting His pure character, trustworthiness, perfection.  He tells us that these are the things that are His will for our lives.  Joy, peace, and thankfulness (the opposite of grumbling, dissatisfaction, discontent, complaining) are fruits of the Spirit and also evidence of a person who makes the best of life’s ingredients, gets on with the job, and daily looks out to enjoy the “good bits.”  This is how abundant life flowers.”
