A great little article here about how a wife can rightfully encourage her husband in the duty of family devotions.
She did it without nagging like a dripping tap, which is known in Vietnam and Proverbs as a torture technique.Key lines:
- She didn’t hint, like we’re playing some sort of subtle marriage sign-language game I’m supposed to decipher.
- She did it without making me feel like I was slacker, though I was being one.
- She didn’t talk to me about it in the midst of one of the busy moments of life.
- She made a date, some condensed milk coffee, and asked if I would be ok with her telling the kids each night that after dinner and bath, and before bedtime, part of the new routine would include family worship?
- The Holy Spirit did the rest.
