MONDAY MORNING MISSION (31 of 36)
FAMILY MATTERS (6 of 6)
We are in a section of Ephesians now that has to do
with family matters.
A few years ago I made a visit in a home of a young
couple that later joined our church and are active
members of our fellowship. It was a young engineer,
his wife, and his children. I was most impressed with
the family and especially impressed with how they were

out into the job.

Morning Mission. I'm talking about where you will go
in the morning when the alarm clock goes off (far
sooner than you and I want it to go off). You'll get
up and do whatever you do to get ready. Then, when
the time comes you will walk out of the door of your
house and go to your Monday Morning Mission Field.

You may go to an office. You may go to a construction
site. You may go to the mall. If you are in school you
may go to a school, ...
