SON SHINE 15: HOME TRUTH
His dad, a pastor, hardly stayed home, leaving before dawn and coming back at night, sometimes not at all. The working mother left at dawn, arriving in the evenings, leaving their only son to roam free. One day, the neighbour?s older daughter was caught teaching their 8-year old boy the act of sex. It dawned on the couple that while it is desirable to minister to others and labour for daily bread, their testimony was threatened.
??what profit hath he that hath laboured for the wind??;
? ? a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.? ?? Ecclesiastes 5: 16; Proverbs 29:15 (KJV).
Your testimony is a gift to be treasured.
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
