Top 5 Bible verses-family

 

A great gift from God!

Family can be….

Calm…

Raucous…

Loving…

Tension filled…

Family can be any of those things…

Or all of those things at the same time.

Whatever word you would use to describe you family at this very moment…

Read these 5 Bible verses (and a bonus quote) to remind us all what a great gift God has given us in families…

Genesis 2:24

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

 Exodus 20:12

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

 1 Timothy 5:8

But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

 Ephesians 6:1-4

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

For those days when there is a little tension in the family…

Those days when harmony is not the first word that comes to your mind when you think of your family…

Here’s a verse from Ephesians…

It reminds us who it is we really honor with all of our actions…

 Ephesians 5:21

Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

 A final thought to give us all pause about how we conduct ourselves in our families….

“A man ought to live so that everybody knows he is a Christian…most of all, his family ought to know.”  Dwight L. Moody
