by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – Does Your Family Resemble God’s Way or the World’s Way?
Editor’s note: Reading through Above Rubies you can see that Nancy is moving the goalposts again tighter while harping on her readers that they must listen to her repeat her lessons to them because a good teacher repeats, repeats, repeats the lessons to the students. No they don’t, good teachers only repeat things as long as necessary for the student’s brain to absorb the new information. Repeating yourself as much as Nancy does seems like something that should be listed in the mental health diagnostic manual.
The devil rarely changes his tactics. Obviously, he finds the ones he uses are effective. Back in the Bible days, he continually tempted the Israelites to become like the nations around them. He uses the same temptation today. Why are God’s people lured to become like the world around them? It happens subtly. Even without trying we become absorbed into our humanist society. We think it is normal when it is totally abnormal according to the plumbline of God’s word.
I am astounded as I talk with church going people to find their lives are not very different from the world. They limit their families, put their children in day-care, and leave the home to go out into the corporate world. This is opposite to God’s original plan.
Recently I talked with a feminist. She hotly disagreed with women embracing their role as mothers in the home. But I had to challenge her to look at the fruit of the feminist agenda. More and more divorce and fragmentation of family. She had no answer.
It’s so easy to be sucked into the system of this world. We need to come continually to God’s Word to be encouraged in the truth. I think it is a great idea for mothers to Read Psalm 127 and 128 about once a week. They are God’s revelation for the family.
