All Families Matter to God
Family is God’s core design for human relationship. Each family has a unique profile of time, place and circumstances with heritages and histories that widely vary, but they all have the same God determined purpose—to be the place where people matter the most and where love is the mightiest word. There is no setting where inspiring and equipping people to love and lead like Jesus could have a more profound influence on the world we live in today.
Pause and Reflect:
What three words best describe the family you grew up in?
What three words you do you hope the members of your family, especially your kids, will use to describe your family as it exists today?
Comparing the answers to the two preceding questions what things do you want to actively preserve and actively prevent inside your family?
Note: Hope is not a strategy. When you identify your hopes for your home you will have to fight for them on a daily basis. A good place to start is by asking yourself, “What are the ways in which I can lead by example in creating memories of home that I hope my kids will want to pass along to the next generation?"
