Good morning study partners! This morning we have a good reminder for workers from Eph 6:5-6. We are told to be good workers, obedient, respectful, sincere, not only when the boss is looking, but all the time…pleasing God! I don’t go away from home for a job, I work @home, so my “masters” are God, and my husband. This certainly admonishes me to not be a slacker & to remember that as I work my attitude & my performance is to be honoring to God. We all have our “down” days or days we are sick, but there are those times I give grudgingly, out of duty- that’s not sincere. There are days I’m a slacker, procrastinating- while my hubby fully trusts me to care for our home & our children well. Ouch! With all my heart, I want to give my sincere best each day to my Masters! 🙂

Good Morning! I need this fresh reminder from Ephesians 6:4. It is fathers who are addressed, I know.
But, I (mother) need to listen & beware, as well!
My words, my tone, my countenance can easily discourage or provoke my children.
Am I being careful with their tender hearts?
Or am I frustrating them or even causing them to be bitter, resentful, or angry? God forbid it.
“O Lord, may I keep a clean heart, pure motives walking with my children, bringing them up in You. Make me conscious, sensitive, aware. Alert me. Stop me. Fill me. Prompt me to be gentle, kind, soft, sweet.”

Good Morning Ephesians bookworms! How wonderful in 6:1-3 in His Word that God especially addresses children! His command for them is to
♥ Obey your parents
♥ Honor your father & mother.
Why? Because it is right and there is a promise, a blessing that goes with this special commandment!
Parents, caregivers, have you heard this?
“It’s much easier to train up the child than to rehabilitate the man.” Let’s train our children lovingly, prayerfully according to God’s Word (& w/His help) so we do not rob them of the precious blessings God has for them! ♥

Good Morning! Today Eph 5:33 “Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” The simple, sweet, good way…
♥ Husband, love your wife like you love yourself.
♥ Wife, make sure you respect your husband.
*Wives, God wants us to love him, too. See what older women should teach the younger in Titus 2:4? “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,”. It’s all about LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Good Morning! Eph 5:31-32…You just can’t improve upon perfection!God’s Word is 100% true; 100% good; 100% timeless. Do you know that God created marriage & it is precious? We can’t attempt to make it what we want it to be & improve upon what God has already created it to be!
*a man shall leave his father & mother
*be joined to his wife, cleave to her
*they are no longer two, but now one flesh
Marriage- it is a beautiful, sweet picture of Jesus & His church. He is the Bridegroom. His church is His bride.
