Action to Take:
- What is your role in life? Check out Luther’s Table of Duties from the Small Catechism, which points to what Scripture has to say to you.
- Ready to work on your marriage. Pick up the book Building the Christian Home and read it with your spouse.
- Think about your family or your position in life right now. Think of one glaring spot where it is out of line with God’s blueprint. Pray for guidance to address this issue. Then make the change fully embracing God’s grace!
