Responsibility of Family

Apart from religious influence, the family is the most important unit of society. It would be good if every home were Christian, but we know that it is not so. The family and the home can never exert their proper influence while ignoring the biblical standard. The Bible calls for discipline and a recognition of authority. If children do not learn this at home, they will go out into society without the proper attitude toward authority and law. There is always the exceptional child, but the average tells us that the child is largely what the home has made him. The only way to provide the right home for your children is to put the Lord above them, and fully instruct them in the ways of the Lord. You are responsible before God for the home you provide for them.

Prayer for the day

Father, keep me from any word or deed that might hinder a child from loving You.

    Proverbs 22:6 NIV
    New International Version

    Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

    The way we choose to raise our children is a huge responsibility. We are fully accountable to God. The influence we have and the example we set for our children will have a major affect on the paths they choose to follow. As they grow and learn , we are their biggest role model on earth. Lord help me to be a Godly example to my daughter and granddaughters .
