My Daily Devotional

Building a Stronger Family

“He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly.”
Acts 10:2

As I have expressed many times in my writings, I believe that parents have a tremendous responsibility to be living examples for their children as to God’s will for the family. Building a stronger family is not easy. It takes a lot of work, time, prayer and sacrifice. The results, however, can be highly rewarding as parents begin to see their children develop into godly men and women, and see how their future generations can be affected by the kind of example they set. There are many things that we can do to strengthen our families, and be the role model that God wants us to be. We need to always show appreciation, respect and love to family members. Compliments and sincere demonstrations of approval are needed so badly by our children in today’s society. Our children need to feel good about themselves and develop a positive attitude. Much of this is developed when we spend time together, such as meals, working together and having fun times together. We need to structure schedules in order to spend time with each other. We must be committed to each person’s happiness and welfare, by spending time and energy with each other, and making our family our number one priority. We must spend time developing good communication patterns by talking and listening to each other. We must know what is going on in other’s lives, and showing respect to all members of the family in everything we do. God must be present in the family at all times, and family life needs to revolve around Him. God will protect the family that has Him as their priority. I would encourage parents to make God and your family your top priority today, so that your children have the best chance to succeed. Make God the center of your family and let Him lead and guide you.

The Nehemiah Network concept has now spread throughout the nation and over 10,000 programs have been developed, in almost all the states, adopting the framework of the Network. I am a published author of 17 Christian books, and have spent over thirty years tracing my ancestors and writing a book about my Kentucky Heritage.
