Words Fitly Spoken
And Other Stories for the Young
Words Fitly Spoken and Other Stories for the Young is a compilation of short stories for the whole family. There is something here for dad, mom, brother, and sister.
Each tale carries the theme that self-love, deeply twisted yet subtle, intrudes upon us, robbing us of the blessings we might have enjoyed had we loved God and others rather than ourselves.
A mother learns to value the lives and souls of two boys not her own. Fathers learn to value their children over their work. Siblings stop fighting and enjoy the peace that God offers when they live together in unity. When we value God’s wisdom over our own self-love, life begins to take on new
The warnings are clear—those who live for themselves may prosper for a time, but they will never be satisfied. May we learn to esteem others better than ourselves and walk humbly with our God!
