I am amazed—well saddened actually—when I observe husbands and dads seeking to give their wife and children a good gift, whether it be for Christmas or a birthday, and yet they pass up giving the best gift they could possibly give. The best gift is free, yet costly. Why give good when you can give the best? It’s not just a great idea but a command of the Spirit.
“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.” (Ephesians 5:25)
Jesus Christ gave His life—everything—for His Bride and “children.” We, too, are commanded to give all. Will we? Our families need us.
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24)
