Hating father and mother? Didn’t the Lord say that we were to honor our father and our mother (Exodus 20:12)? Hating wife and children? Doesn’t Paul tell husbands to love their wives–the way that Christ loved the Church (Ephesians 5:25)?

По примеру нашей христианской жизни жить, то есть жизнью, прожитой самим Христом, и ходить-в смирении служить, с любовью и состраданием. Будьте готовы дать тем, кто ищет и живет в смятении своей души. Помните, что однажды мы проиграли и боролись за то, чтобы найти ответы на вопросы нашей жизни, за которые мы получили благословения в нашем Спасителе. Они полны страха и смятения и испытывают трудности в рассуждении и понимании спасения, предложенного в Иисусе. Будьте там, чтобы быть учеником и предлагать утешение и поддержку.
