The Two Bears...by Dr. J.T. Parish

A married couple had arguments that became so loud the neighbors heard them. Suddenly they ceased their bickering.
When asked what happened, the wife said, “Two bears did it.” The husband explained, “We found these two bears in the Bible: ‘Bear ye one another’s burdens’ and ‘forbearing one another in love’.”
Home is the place where people are often treated the worst. This ought not be. Home should be a place where the Golden Rule is practiced. Home should be a place of love, joy, harmony, and kindness.
A good way to discover to whom you should show the most kindness – ask yourself this question: Who would grieve the most if I were to die?
People often speak words of kindness to complete strangers all day and then come home and take their frustrations out on family members. This is a bad mistake.
A great scripture that should be practiced first at home:
“Let all bitterness and wrath, and anger and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
