Called a Christian

In conversation yesterday,  a young man said to me, “My wife is a true Christian.”

No finer compliment can a man pay his wife than to describe her in that way.


My other blog is here.

    Yes, it’s most “difficult” to be a “true Christian” with the ones closest to you!

    Good morning, DEAN and YAN

    Yes, those nearest to us know us as we truly are. What a compliment to be called a Christian.

    Be blessed today

    Years ago, a close friend of mine said to me: It’s easier for others to see you as God sees you and have faith than for the ones that are the closest to you – they see all your shortcomings and struggles.
    Yes, it is a great compliment to be called a Christian by those nearest to us.
