The Broken Home

By   •   December 1   •   Topics:

The broken home has become the number one social problem of America, and could ultimately lead to the destruction of our civilization. Since the basic unit of any society is the home, when the home begins to break, the society is on the way to disintegration. It is a threat to the American way of life. It does not make screaming headlines; but, like termites, it is eating away at the heart and core of the American structure.

It is high time that our so-called experts on marriage, the family, and the home turn to the Bible. We have read newspaper columns and listened to counselors on the radio; psychiatrists have had a land-office business. In it all, the One who performed the first marriage in the Garden of Eden and instituted the union between man and wife has been left out.

Prayer for the day

I pray, Lord, for the homes in this beloved country. Without Your love and wisdom guiding us, our society will crumble.

    I pray that our Lord, Jesus, bless our homes with permanent peace and happiness. Whenever the devil attempts to come into the home to corrupt and destroy it, I pray that the Lord will help us to prevent the evil one from gaining any access!

  2. Barry Johnson says:

    AMEN!! The home and family are gifts from GOD. We must turn back to the fundamentals GOD has provided for us. Thank you for these daily devotions.

    I’m afraid that divorce has become the “national pastime” notw/standing more divorces in the church than in the world these days.

    So true ……Families bicker , fight and separate over sometimes trivial things. Marriages have become disposable. God had all but totally been removed from our schools, in the name of political correctness. However Christ remains on his throne for all who would Trust and Obey.

    This is true there are too many broken homes that can be fixed by opening the door to Jesup Christ! If many would realize this there would far few broken homes and many more happy homes!


    I will pray for our families. M
