Genesis 2:24 “A man shall leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”
Everything in our homes is being shaken. The American family is being turned upside down. Over seventy percent of our children do not live with both of their biological parents.
What does a family consist of? A family is a man and a woman joined in marriage, and any children they have, whether theirs or adopted. God gave His blessing and instruction concerning this unit.
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church.” Ephesians 5:25
“Wives, be subject to your own husband as to the Lord.” Ephesians 5:22
“Children, obey your parents in the Lord…Dads, bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:1,4
What is a family? It is a man and woman building their relationship on a covenant of love between the Lord and them. A tri-fold bond not easily broken. It is a sovereign unit bonded together against any outside foes. The family is a blessing of the Lord.
