Marriage and Family

Dewater 4

“And these words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house…” Deuteronomy 6:6-7a

TV, Video Games, Internet, Eating, Sleeping, Homework, Bible Reading, Praying… what goes on at your house?

Do you every get stuck in a routine at home? Don’t get me wrong, routines can be REALLY good! But, the wrong routines can also be REALLY bad! Last evening, my family broke out of a routine that we had been stuck in.

We really enjoy watching old shows together as a family. Watching a show together as a family can be a healthy thing to do together. Unfortunately for us, it became something we were doing on a regular basis over dinner. You know, when you are watching a show over dinner, the focus drifts from building relationship with family and God to simply being entertained. Now, we are going to get back into a routine of building relationship with each other and God over dinner.

The scripture above is not just a suggestion, but a prescription for a healthy family before God.

What routines does your family have that might need to be changed?

What routines does your family have that are helping you build relationships with each other and God?

My encouragement for us this week: Build routines into your life that will help you build relationship with each other and with God!

Have a great week!
