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 love being in God’s Word everyday. My Auntie and grandmother taught me since when I was growing. I want to teach my two boys to know God deeply

    Okay my sister has just came out of a very abusive relationship, got her family back in church, trying to raise her children in a godly way while the father is trying to beat her down. He suffers from an abuse cycle and there is no domestic crime around here, well none they they admit but the nights are the same. The kids and my sister are suffering because of it but if you do anything your now the bad one. What do you do. Please pray that the truth is revealed cause this family needs it and those who haven’t seen it are blinded by the things they don’t see.

    My two girls and two grand daughters really need your prayers… We lost my husband / father 3 years ago and my girls and I have been separated living home to home ever since we have ran out of options and we have no help from my family.. I am now on disability and my oldest daughter is 5 months pregnant and now that we have very Lil money coming in we are looking to hopefully find a place where we can be a family again.. We have nothing but each other and I am keeping the faith that someone finds it in their heart to rent us a place to live.. Prayers are well needed for my family… thank you..

    “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
