Treasure Your Family Март 30, 2011

»…Thus shall the man be blessed…» Psalm 128:4

If you’re nice to outsiders but not to your own family, you have a problem that needs addressing. So read this: ‘The children were loud, cranky, impossible. I was tired and fed up. So I decided to run away from it all and have a day just for me — a day in which I did what I wanted. I was going to live it up and be as greedy as I pleased. I wasn’t going to tend to anybody but myself. I zoomed out of the house with 60 pounds. «There, I did it!» I said to myself as I drove up the road. Well, I went to a shopping centre, had a great time in a bookshop and bought the collected poems of Walt Whitman. Afterwards I drove to McDonald’s and ordered two hamburgers, my own large fries and my own large drink. I ate everything without being interrupted, giving my pickle to anyone, or wiping anyone’s mouth, nose or bottom. Then I ate the biggest chocolate ice cream I could find. I was free! So I drove to the cinema and watched a film without buying popcorn, without someone sitting on my lap, without escorting someone to the toilets. I was a free man. I was living it up — and I was miserable. By the time I returned home everyone was asleep. As I slipped into bed my wife whispered, «We missed you.»‘ I answered, «Me too.» I never ran away from home again!’ The Psalmist wrote, ‘Your wife shall be… in the very heart of your house, your children… all around your table. Behold, thus shall the man be blessed…’ (vv. 3-4 NKJV).
