“He blesses the home of the upright” (Proverbs 3:33).
He who fears the LORD comes under divine protection–even his roof which covers him and his family. His home is a place of love, a school of holy training, and a place of heavenly light. In it there is a family altar where the name of the LORD is daily held in reverence. As a result, the LORD blesses his home. It may be a humble cottage or a lordly mansion; but the LORD’s blessing comes because of the character of the inhabitant and not because of the size of the dwelling.
That house is most blessed in which the master and mistress are God fearing people, but a son or daughter or even a servant may bring a blessing on a whole household.
The LORD often preserves, prospers, and provides for a family for the sake of one or two in it, who are “just” persons in His esteem, because His grace has made them so.
Beloved, let us have Jesus for our constant guest even as the sisters of Bethany had, and then we shall be blessed indeed.
Let us look to it that in all things we are just — in our trade, in our judgment of others, in our treatment of neighbors, and in our own personal character.
A just God cannot bless unjust transactions.
