God Has a Plan for - Family


Deut. 6: 6-9 (NIV) - "These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates."

We mentioned earlier this week God's plan for marriage. Part of that plan is the procreation of the race. Marriage is God's plan for children to be brought into this world. It is God's plan for Family.

Fathers and Mothers have the awesome task of raising children to become godly people in this world. He gives a method in the verses above. It is parents primary responsibility in the education, correction, and nurturing of these children. We as teachers can come alongside parents, but it is never the school, government, community, village, or anyone else that God has primarily tasked with raising children. It is parents.

Today, seek to encourage a parent (or soon to be parent) with their task of child-rearing. Be an asset to them - come alongside and lift them up in their responsibility.
