When thinking of doing good deeds, we naturally think of helping others outside of our family circle. Perhaps there may be a desperate need of your time from your wife, perhaps your husband needs you to listen without distractions, or perhaps your children need you to be more involved with the changes they are going through.
“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
Philippians 2:4 ESV
See how you can apply the scripture above to your marriage or to children in your home. Take a look at what your family needs before you look to help outside of the home. When we neglect the needs of our spouse or children it can certainly have negative consequences.
We are called not to live life for ourselves, but to live life for others.
