There are houses that are wrong and houses that are right because we know this from the word of the Lord (Psalm 119:86-105; Joshua 24:15; Acts 16:30-33). With that being said, we ask. “Is your house right?” Just in case you haven’t a clue as to what makes a house right, listen to this. If you are male, do you show the leadership which directs the family as you walk according to God’s word? Is your house in church on Sunday? Have you obeyed the gospel, being baptized for the forgiveness of sins? (Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16). Are you married to the woman in your house? Are your children born into a legal marriage? Are you having Bible classes in your home teaching your children how to behave and become productive citizens of the future? Do you have fits of rage, swearing, smoking, drinking, hanging out in the streets, and your children know?
Once again I ask, “Is your house right?” The problems of cities with crime come from a bad house where no one is teaching or doing what is right. Is your house a breeding ground for the future problems of the city? As Smokey the Bear said, “only you can prevent forest fires.”
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
