God Made the Family

A Truth to Live – God’s ideal for the family is one father, one mother and children.  His chain of command in Scripture is clear: husband-wife-children. He asks husbands to give their lives for their wives, wives to follow the godly leadership of their husbands and children to honor and obey their parents.  Both parents are responsible to train their children to grow in the fear of the Lord and in favor with God and man.

Scripture – “My son, keep your father’s commands and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. Bind them upon your heart forever; fasten them around your neck.  Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church, wives submit/follow your husbands as unto the Lord.” Proverbs 6:20-21, Ephesians 5:21-6:4

Prayer – Heavenly Father, teach me today to begin to walk toward You and the path of healing that You have for my family.  Help me to live each day faithful to Your Word and to begin to change my conversation and love toward my family so that Your blessings will become my inheritance.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
