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.

    Love this and we have done that with our kids and still have seemed to stray away from the Lord. It hurts my heart real bad. I know the Lord says ” bring them up in the way they should go and they’ll not depart from it.” I know the Lord is coming soon and don’t want them going to hell.

    Thank you for your scriptural view point on the role of families in a child’s development. Let’s continue to pray that God will raise up Christian fathers and mothers as loving examples in our lost culture.

      As parents we are each responsible for Godly instruction and discipline within our homes. Find all you need to accomplish this task in the Bible.
