April 22, 1951 H ome H ints for H appiness Object: A piece of paper 8% x 11 inches. (Fold each end to within inch of the middle, leaving a gap of % inch. In this space print the word “ HOME.” On the folded flaps paste pictures of happy people, including father, mother and children. Open the flaps, and using the letters in the word “ HOME,” complete the follow ing words, “ TEACHINGS, OBEDI ENCE, SUBMISSION, and LOVE.” ) Lesson: Down the middle of this paper you see the word “ HOME” printed. If you look carefully at the faces of the people on this paper, you will be able to tell what kind of a home it is. “ I would say that it is a happy home.” You are correct, Paul. Most people would like to have a happy home, but very few seem to know how they may have one. Perhaps if we open the doors of this home, we shall see what makes it happy. The first word we notice in the happy home is the word, “ TEACHINGS.” After God had given Moses certain commandments, He said, “And thou shalt teach them dili gently unto thy children” (Deut. 6 :7). The teaching of God’s Word helps to make a happy home. The next word is “ OBEDIENCE.” Of Jesus we read, “And he went down with them, [Joseph and Mary] and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them” (Luke 2:51). Certainly the word “ OBEDIENCE” is an im portant word in planning for a happy home. The third word is “ SUBMISSION." In Ephesians 5:22 we read, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own hus bands, as unto the Lord.” The last word is “ LOVE.” We read in Ephesians 5:25 these words, “ Hus bands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave him self for it.” T eachings ^ OBEDIENCE SUBMISSION LOVE
Lesson: Who can tell me what is the matter with these hearts? “ They are only half there.” Yes, they are like people who are halfhearted. I wonder whether their colors may not tell us why they are halfhearted. One is black, reminding us of sin. Sin often accounts for the halfheart ed attitude on the part of many peo ple. Jeremiah 1 7 :9 tells us that “ the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.” Another heart is yellow. When we speak of a person being yellow we mean that he is afraid. We have all known people who were halfhearted in the Lord’s service, because they feared their companions. The third heart is green. I have heard people called green when they were ignorant or inexperienced. Cer tainly the person who is halfhearted in God’s service is unmindful of the great rewards God has for those who faithfully serve Him. Here is a whole heart. It reminds us of those who wholeheartedly serve God. (Place it in the center of the triangle.) Caleb was a man who wholeheartedly served God. In Joshua 14:14 we read, “ Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb . . . because that he wholly followed the Lord God of Israel.” Let us learn from Caleb and from these hearts that God has special rewards for all those who wholeheart edly serve Him.
