“The principle inculcated by the injunction, “Be kindly affectioned one to another” (Romans 12:10), lies at the very foundation of domestic happiness.
Unkindness, complaining, and anger shut Jesus from the dwelling. I saw that angels of God will flee from a house where there are unpleasant words, fretfulness, and strife.
Gentle manners, cheerful conversation, and loving acts will bind the hearts of children to their parents by the silken cords of affection and will do more to make home attractive than the rarest ornaments that can be bought for gold.”
