Family Tip Number 1

Sadly, there’s no manual for being a perfect husband or wife, or father or mother. And yet, God has some powerful words of wisdom to speak into your family.

I have some friends who live in Lincoln, Nebraska – Mark and his wife, Precious. Now, they’ve brought up nine children and each one of those adult children is still walking with the Lord.

Over the years, they seemed to me, to have this whole family thing so, together. So recently, I asked them for their top five tips for building a godly family. Here’s tip number 1 – this is what Mark said:

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of Christ. What do we mean by this? The written Word of God is absolutely central to everything we do in parenting and to birthing faith in the hearts of our children.

We can talk, lecture, admonish, discipline, correct, nag, whatever, until we’re blue in the face and it’ll do no good at all, unless the Spirit of God takes His own Word and does a work in the hearts of our children.

So, we expose and challenge them with God’s Word as often as possible. In our home, over the years, that’s taken the form of bedtime stories, Scripture reading at the dinner table, family devotional times, Scripture memory, using real life experiences to show how God’s Word speaks to every situation, all sorts of things.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by God. And all Scripture is useful for teaching and for showing people what is wrong in their lives. It is useful for correcting faults and teaching the right way to live. Using the Scriptures, those who serve God will be prepared and will have everything they need to do every good work.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
