Of all the ways the Lord God Almighty could have chosen to relate to humanity, He chose the language of family. Therefore it is no wonder the family unit has always played an important role in the outworking of God's purposes on earth. However in today’s demanding world we find that more and more parents are not keeping to what really matters, rather neglect their personal devotional lives, their husbands or wives, and their children.
Today's message reminds us of the scriptural priority of God first, family second, career and ministry third. Although parents are responsible to provide for their children's material needs, their primary role is to provide spiritual and moral training of their children.
We all have a need to be loved, cherished, protected, and valued. Many times earthly fathers do not live up to the ideal, God promises that, in Him, no one has to be without a perfect Father. And we can come to our heavenly Father through our Savior Jesus Christ.
