by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – A New Vision For Your Home
Editor’s note: One thing is surprising about Nancy Campbell – her ability to repackage the message of ‘control your thoughts and words’ and ‘no negative emotions or thoughts allowed’ into a myriad of messages that boil down to that simple ‘control yourself and BE HAPPY or ELSE!’ This is more of that.
How often do you use the word “edify” in your everyday language? It’s certainly not a very common word, is it? I wonder if your children know the meaning. I think the reason we don’t use it frequently is because it’s not a secular word. It’s a Bible word and occurs nearly 40 times in the New Testament.
It’s all about building up one another–encouraging one another, making one another strong and secure in the storms of life, and inspiring one another to grow stronger and stronger and taller and taller in the Lord.
It’s all about building up our home–building on the foundation of God’s Word, daily strengthening and encouraging our family unit, dispelling disunity, repairing rifts, hurts, and misunderstandings, and reaching forth for all that God has for us. As we build our family, we don’t want a half-finished building, but a magnificent building!
