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.

    I am so thankful that my parents raised us in the church and doing bible studies in the mornings before school. Prayer before every meal. Respect while in our small country church. My dad was in the Gideon’s and my mom has spent many years a church choir director. This kind of influence planted seeds for myself and ny siblings. Not all of us made the best choices, but I am so thankful that my parents introduced me to Christ as a young boy and He has stayed with me throughout and I know exactly where to go when I had wandered off a bit too far.

    I thank God for my wife Lynda that gave loving guidance and teaching Godly principals to our four children while I was on deployments aboard ship in my 23 year Naval career. She went to be with Jesus Oct. 2011. Sadly missed by everyone that knew her.
