Masters are not to use a continual faultfinding and threatening tone, but to act towards servants as Jesus, their Master, has acted towards them.
The Apostle does not speak against the various distinctions of society, but he would have us act rightly in them. May our household always be a happy one, because each one seeks the happiness of the rest, and does so by keeping his own place, and behaving towards others in the spirit of love.
Happy the home where Jesus’ name
Is sweet to every ear;
Where children early lisp his fame,
And parents hold him dear.
Lord, let us in this home agree,
That thou alone shalt reign,
For those who love and worship thee,
In joyous peace remain.
