Genesis 2:24 “A man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.”
The family is a shelter from the storms of life. We all have bad days where nothing seems to go right. We get dumped on, beaten down, and discouraged. Everyone needs a place of refuge and protection where we can share our problems, doubts, and frustrations and find acceptance, understanding, and rest. We need a place of peace.
God meant for the family to be a place where you kick back, relax, and enjoy life. John 10:10 “…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Absolutely nothing knits a family together like everyone knowing the Lord and living in obedience to His Word. When you are serving the Lord together there is a bond formed that’s going to shelter you through the hard rough days, the bad times that visit us all. This bond with God and each other shelters us from the storms and lasts into eternity.
