The Family Is God’s Idea

Families are close to God’s heart. In fact, they were His idea in the first place. From the beginning, when God created man, He said, “It is not good for man to be alone,” so He created woman as a “help-meet, suitable for him” (Genesis 2:18).

Godly Generations

If we don’t transmit our knowledge of God to the next generation, it will be lost. God uses the family unit to transmit His knowledge from one generation to the next and be “salt” and “light” in the world. If the family can be destroyed, the Christian fabric in society will ultimately unravel.

Family Under Attack

It takes work to drag our children against the tide, because we have to work against the sin nature, natural desires of the flesh, secular humanism, peer pressure, and compromise. How successful we are at this depends on how we have modeled for them an authentic relationship with Christ.

Your Family Legacy

Let there be no doubt: A legacy is a very, very powerful thing. Let there be no doubt about this either: You too will leave a legacy. Truly, it’s not a question of if you will leave a legacy, it is only a matter of what kind.
