YOUR FAMILY PREDETERMINES CERTAIN THINGS ABOUT YOU.

PRESERVE THE FAMILY BOND GOD HAS ENTRUSTED TO

YOU.

SAVE THE FAMILY FROM EXTINCTION!

1- HUMAN FAMILY

THE RELATIONSHIP IS CHOSEN BY GOD AND IS NATURAL AND PURPOSEFUL.

FOR CHILDREN, THE DUTY IS TO OBEY AND HONOR. 6:1-3

CHILDREN, LEARN TO OBEY. (JESUS’ PRIORITY AT YOUR AGE! – Luke 2:42-52)

FOR PARENTS, THE DUTY IS, “DON’T PROVOKE AND DO PROVIDE”. 6:4

THIS DUTY FALL FIRST ON FATHERS.

THE RAISING OF A CHILD IS ONE OF THE MOST NOBLE THINGS YOU’LL EVER

DO.

PARENTS HOLD THE UMBRELLA THAT PROTECTS THEIR CHILDREN.

Work on being greatest to those closest to you.

2- HEAVENLY FAMILY

THE RELATIONSHIP IS CHOSEN BY GOD AND CALLED ADOPTION.

THE RESPONSIBILITIES ARE SIMILAR TO OUR HUMAN FAMILIES.

Our imperfect human families point us to our perfect heavenly family.
