Shepherd Sayings January 25, 2018
DOING THINGS TOGETHER is important for a healthy family. Healthy families spend time doing all sorts of things.
There are many necessary things in the life of a family. However, I have found that a relationship with God is the most important part of family life.
The Bible says, “There is only one God. Love God with all your heart. Keep God’s words in your heart always. Teach God’s words to 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” (See Deut. 6:4-9 for the full text).
Simply stated, the Bible teaches that we should talk about God in every part of life. Talk about God when you work, go on vacation, play games, have cook outs, etc.
The best shared family activity I have ever seen is to go to Sunday school and Church together. Keep God at the center of your life during the week by thanking him for the food you eat.
There is an old and true saying, “The family that prays together, stays together.” Families that work together, play together, pray together, usually stay together.
Begin or end each day with a family devotional time. Read the Bible together. Learn the wonderful truths of God as a family.
May the good Lord help you build a spiritually healthy family. Amen
