Love At Home enditnow Emphasis Day Written by Dr. Julian Melgosa General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists WOMENS MINISTRIES DEPARTMENT Ephesians 5: 28-29 So husbands ought to

love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes 1. HOMES ARE SHELTERS Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your

children will be like olive shoots around your table. Psalm 128:3 (NIV) To married men I am instructed to say, It is to your wives, the mothers of your children, that your respect and affection are due. Your attentions are to be given to them, and your thoughts are to dwell upon plans for their

happiness. 2. HOMES ARE TO BE PLACES OF SAFETY, NOT VIOLENCE Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. Col. 3: 19 (NIV)

If he is a coarse, rough, boisterous, egotistical, harsh, and overbearing man, let him never utter the word that the husband is the head of the wife, and that she must submit to him in everything; for he is not the Lord, he is not the husband in the true significance of the term.

3. HOMES ARE TO BE SOURCES OF HONOR, NOT OF SHAME I will give you what you have not asked forboth wealth and honor. 1 Kings 3:13 (NIV) 4. HOMES ARE TO BE

PLACES OF TRUST, NOT FEAR When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praisein God I trust and am not afraid. Psalm 56:3-4 (NIV) 5. ABUSERS MUST NOT BE TOLERATED, BUT THEY

SHOULD BE HELPED Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will ishis good, pleasing and perfect will.

ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR MAY BE RECOGNIZED BY ASKING ONESELF THESE QUESTIONS: Do I treat my boss, neighbor, or colleague in the same way I treat my wife? Do I treat my wife or children the same way in public as I do at home? If someone treated my daughter, sister, or mother in the way I treat my wife, would I see it as acceptable?

6. THE CHURCH SHOULD BE A FRIENDLY, SUPPORTIVE, COMPASSIONATE PLACE Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be

joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lords people who are in need. Practice hospitality. For abused wives and children, the support of the church community, their Christian love, is important for survival and healing.

CHURCH CONGREGATIONS CAN BECOME Places where committed, caring, discreet individuals are available to listen, encourage, and aid victims of domestic violence. The only place to go in locations without centers sponsored by NGOs or governments. A caring family, able to empathize in a

reliable way with those suffering. A woman-to-woman support system, perhaps via Shepherdess or Womens Ministries. The context where the local pastor can provide moral support and serve as a mediator to confront the abuser. A place where selected members surround and support abused women and children who may be able to talk, to cry, and to pray in a non-threatening, non-judgmental

environment. 7. THE LORD IS THE ULTIMATE ANSWER I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 (NIV)

Extended family, including the church family, also need the outpouring of the Holy Spiritto become sensitive, unflinching, wise, and caring in order to love, support, and provide the practical and spiritual help needed.
