The Wife's Ministry

"But a wife's ministry of mercy reaches outside her own doors. Every true home is an influence of blessing in the community where it stands. It lights shine out. Its songs ring out. Its spirit breathes out. The neighbors know whether it is hospitable or inhospitable, warm or cold, inviting or repelling. Some homes bless no lives outside their own circle; others are perpetually pouring out sweetness and fragrance. The ideal Christian home is a far-reaching benediction." J.R. Miller, Home-making, 1882
