dinner and the two of them began to argue about the best way to prepare

God it is so good to know that is not the
way You designed the family. Our family one of these days will not be
filled with anger and hate. In the meantime, please help us Lord to

Help us to call on Your name and seek Your will in every confrontation
within "our family". We know they will come, it's part of living here
on this earth, but give us wisdom and understanding in how to deal with
each situation we face.
In Jesus Name I ask You,
"The fool who
provokes his family to anger and resentment
will finally have nothing
left. He shall be the servant of a wiser man "
