a house is actually a school and church

A few days back I posted about this new book I found called Our Home is like a little Church. It is understatement to say that I love this book. It is so short and true. Very practical for me as a parent and my sons as children.

The introduction to the book has an outstanding quote from Martin Luther. I pray that there would be more and more men and fathers who approach family life, home life, and child-rearing with this great responsibility,  seriousness, and intensity.

Here is the Martin Luther quote :

“Abraham had in his tent a house of God and a church, just as today any godly and pious head of a household instructs his children… in godliness. Therefore such a house is actually a school and church, and the head of the household is a bishop and priest in his house.”
