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.

    I’m a mother of 9 months old baby girl…we really need your prayers so that we will be able to raise our child in accordance with God’s word.pray that me and my husband will be able to provide her such a home where she will grow in the knowledge of God.

    So many family values have been destroyed because of the new laws that have been passed. What’s worse is the fact that, if we speak out against these laws, we are labeled as terrorists.

    And for this reason a MAN shall LEAVE his mother and father and cling onto his wife! We are to grow up and LEAVE the family, but we are called to look after our widows. It’s a shame when people still continue to look to their parents for aid, rather than their advice.

    I am a young mom of three with a husband not as spiritual as I once was. We need a lot of prayer for our family to know how to instruct our children spiritually.

    This hangs over my head everyday. When I loose my patience with the kids (6yrs, 4yrs, 3yrs and 7 months) I always pray that God will continue His work in them. I pray that all four will love and follow God.

    “The Bible calls for discipline and a recognition of authority” can a parent be so “hard” that when child is 18 yrs they leave and do opposite of what they were taught?
