Responsibility of Family

By   •   January 27   •   Topics: ,

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 completely agree in raising your children according to the word of God. My 8 year old daughter who gave her life to Christ when she was five years old for the first time last Sunday in service experienced the presence of God in service. She looked at me and was crying and said momma I felt God’s presence, you don’t have any idea what that does to a mother’s heart. I was filled with some much joy that now God, continues to bring that to my remembrance that how my husband has committed to raising our children isn’t in vain! I want to encourage every mother, keep praying, teaching, and living a holy life before children. No matter what they may do, the bible clearly states if you trained up a child the way they should go when the grow old they WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.
