The Big Idea
Families are blessings from God. But that doesn’t mean they’re not messy. Relationships between spouses, parents and children, and siblings are all complicated by differences in beliefs, personalities, and understandings about how family members should interact. And, in the broader sense of “family”, we don’t always treat one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.
This series will help us understand God’s expectations for our roles in a family as explained throughout the Bible. In each part of the series, we’ll learn how to apply over-arching Biblical principles of family values to ensure that we follow our family roles and see our families as blessings. Most importantly, we’ll receive assurance of God’s forgiveness when we don’t do this perfectly. Families aren’t perfect, but they do matter.
“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my house-hold, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15)
