Topic: Pattern of Living
Dr. Douglass, as quoted in Pilgrim's Progress (Pilgrim Congregational Church), St. Louis, Missouri]
It is difficult to learn the spirit of unselfishness, which is the bond of family life, when the family itself is living selfishly. There is no essential difference between one person living exclusively for his own interest and four or five persons exclusively seeking their own welfare as a family. Family life, like individual life, becomes significant as it is dedicated to something beyond and bigger than itself .
Here lies one of the greatest values of bringing some kind of Christian observance into the home circle: ... There is one way in which some of the central values of family worship can be realized, and that is by bringing into the home a concern for the needs of our fellows, and by making that concern the incentive to some cooperative sacrifice and self-giving for the sake of others.
