The Family

There is so much rubbish that we are not able to build the wall.

Nehemiah 4:10 

The family is the most important institution in the world; And I say this, because It was God’s plan; He ordained it. It was not the idea of sociologists. Families and homes existed before cities and governments, written language, nations, temples, or churches.

God intended for the home to be a family’s foundation, a place of security. God meant for the home to be a place where character and attitudes were formed, integrity born, and values made clear. These are attributes that last a lifetime. 

However, sadly today, the home and family are under attack from outside rubbish. In Nehemiah 4:10, the Bible says: “There is so much rubbish that we are not able to build.” We see rubbish everywhere—rubbish on our televisions, on digital devices, in literature, and in magazines that poke fun at the idea of traditional home experience. The institution of the home once fortified society.

Satan is attacking the family as never before. What should our defence against such attacks be? If families returned to God and make Him the focus of the home and the heart of the family, reading the Bible that brings comfort in turmoil and light to dark pathways, each nation would begin to rebuild on a sure foundation. “Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established” (Proverbs 24:3).

Bible Reading

Nehemiah 4:7-17.


Great God of Mercy and Grace, thank You, for families and homes. But most of all, thank You for the Christian family, of which I am apart. Help me to build it up. For Christ's sake I ask. Amen.
