In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
The Christian family is an institution where parents are bound together by Christian love, where children are happy and instructed with the scriptures, where the Lord Jesus is the Head and where parents and children gather daily for worship. A Christian family is one that radiates Christ, welcomes strangers and dispenses hospitality.
- WHAT IS THE DUTY OF THE FATHER?
God has placed the husband as the head of the home. –
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
The Christian husband must always put God first in his life.
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
He must love his wife, children and must love Christ more.
He is the priest of the family and responsible to establish a family altar for daily worship.
- WHAT IS THE DUTY OF THE MOTHER?
One or two loving women have made many men great, a godly mother or a devoted wife is a tremendous asset. She is to serve Jesus Christ, show love, obey her husband.
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord
The woman is not to be adorned with ornaments only, instead, wives are to be adorned with good works, a meek and quiet spirit.
Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 5 For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands
Must be trustworthy.
WHAT IS THE DUTY OF THE CHILDREN?
Children are to honour their parents
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
And pray for them
They must also return their parent’s love. Children of today shall be the parents of tomorrow.-
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
The secret of a successful Christian home is in the family altar where Christ is the crowned as Head of the home. Love is the second secret. Fathers and mothers should always remember that we are all children with a loving Father above, who constantly demonstrates His love. –
For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
