A Godly Home

The Word of God: John 1:6-13

A Godly Home

“And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children….” (Deuteronomy 6:7, KJV)

A home is to be more than just a place to rest, eat and sleep. It is actually the greatest school in the world. In the home, we are to utilize the time we have with our family members to build them up in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ. The world teaches the ways of darkness — the ways of self-centred man. However, in our homes, there should be a constant flow in the knowledge of the ways of God. There should be prayer and an exercising of faith that God is the Great Provider for our lives, the Healer of our body, and the One who prospers and sustains us through every battle of life. Each day, there must be a specific act of teaching the Word of God to the family.

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

READ: Deuteronomy 6:1-9

You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. —Deuteronomy 6:7

In my family scrapbook is a picture of my daughter at age 4 working next to me, using a toy hammer to repair the siding on the house. Side by side we worked that day; she imitated my every action, absolutely convinced that she too was fixing the house. Rarely have I enjoyed a chore more. In the picture, it’s obvious that she’s enjoying it too.

That photo reminds me that our children mimic most of what they see in us—words and deeds. They also form their images of God from the images they have of us as parents. If we’re stern and unmerciful, they’re likely to see God that way too. If we’re distant and cold, so God will seem to them as well. It is one of our most important duties as parents to help our children see God clearly, especially the unconditional nature of His love.

I can imagine the family scrapbook of my relationship with God having a similar picture. I’m learning from Him how to live life, how to love, and how to make it a permanent part of my being. He then teaches me how to teach others (Deut. 6:1-7).

May the Lord grant us an understanding of Him and the wisdom to pass it on. —Randy Kilgore

We must teach our children clearly
What is right and what is wrong;
Live before them an example—
Godly, righteous, pure, and strong. —Fitzhugh

 

 

To teach your children well, let God teach you.

 

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Godliness With Contentment

Godliness With Contentment

If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even
the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is
according to godliness; he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting
about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife,
railings, evil surmisings, perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness:
from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great
gain

1 Timothy 6:3-6

An individual who will not obey the Word of God, who will not consent
to the Word, is proud; he’s ignorant. The Amplified Bible says these
people have a morbid fondness for controversy.

The world’s system says that money, power, and fame are God-like qualities that cause people who possess them to be admired, idolized, and worshipped. In other words, people in the world think that gain is
godliness.

However, Paul, said that godliness with contentment is great gain. The word content means “to be possessed of sufficient strength, strong, and
satisfied.” Contentment is an attitude as well as an inner state. When
you are satisfied on the inside, you have joy on the inside.
Contentment gives you the correct attitude, and then you will be
satisfied.

 

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Experiencing the goodness of God and His infinite wisdom

Proverbs 3:13, 16-18 “Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding……….Length of days is in her right hand, In her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who retain her.”

The bible is referring to the power of Godly wisdom in your life. When you apply the Word of God, which is the wisdom of God to your life, you will find yourself on a path to fulfilling the destiny of God and experiencing the goodness of God like never before. Your life will be like tree planted by many waters, that never thirsts and never runs dry. Amen!
