It will not do to be a saint abroad–and a devil at home!

(Charles Spurgeon)

There is a great importance in the way in which a man lives in his house. It will not do to be a saint abroad–and a devil at home! There are some of that kind. They are wonderfully sweet at a prayer meeting–but they are dreadfully sour to their wives and children. This will never do! 

Every genuine believer should say, and mean it, “I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.” It is in the home, that we get the truest proof of godliness.

“What sort of a man is he?” said one to George Whitefield–and Whitefield answered, “I cannot say, for I never lived with him.” 

That is the way to test a man–to live with him.
