ZwPI8cfkFamily Members Do their Different Duties

   Husband
   Wife
   Junior         (If a girl, then replace Junior with June.)
   Prompter    Shout a brief line and Echoes repeat it.
   Echoes       Children and all adults who want to take part. Echoes need no script.

Husband

Well, dear, did you notice a wife’s duties
that we read in Colossians?
You are to be subject to your husband.
You have to do everything I say!

Prompter & Echoes

Everything!

Wife

Now, wait. It doesn’t say to “subject” me;
I am to submit myself.

Husband

I don’t see the difference.

Wife

Then remember a husbands’ duties in Ephesians 5 also, dear.

Husband

Oh. t says we’re to love our wives
and not be embittered against them.

Wife

Aha! A loving husband makes his wife’s submission joyful.
You’re to love me as Jesus loved his church
and gave his life for it.
So there!

Husband

Well, can you say that a bit more submissively?

Wife

Oh! I will try.
Dear God, help me to be a godly and respectful wife.

Husband

And help me show my love in a more conscientious way.

Prompter & Echoes

Amen!

Wife

I see it now. You love me, I respect you, and we are both happy.

Husband

Oh, here is Junior. Son, do you recall what we read in Colossians?

Junior

Yeah, dad.
We children are to obey our parents in all things,
 and it pleases the Lord.
So I’ve gotta do what you say.

Wife

And what I say, too. Now, it’s time for you to go to bed.

Prompter & Echoes

Now!

Junior

Not yet! I have a new video game.
Why do I have to go to bed when I am not tired?
You always nag me about this, mom.

Father

(Shout angrily)
Is that how you answer your mother?
You are grounded for a week. You deserve worse!
Do what your mom says. Now!

Wife

Just a moment, husband dear!
How did the Bible say to correct our kids?

Prompter & Echoes

You forgot!

Husband

Oh! We’re not to exasperate our kids and make them bitter.
I’m sorry, Junior. I shouldn’t have shouted at you so angrily.
I’ll not ground you this time. But I will next time.
Now, please do as your mom says, and we’ll all be happy.

Junior

Yes, dad. Right now.
Good night mom. Good night dad. I love you both.

Prompter & Echoes

And we love you!
