Somethings, good things have happened on accident, can you imagine a world with out Corn Flakes, Microwave Ovens, Silly Putty, Slinky, Potato Chips, Play-Doh, all those things happened by accident. Healthy Families don’t belong in that list. Some really great things have happened on accident , but Healthy Families don’t.
The drive verse we have been using in series has been Joshua 24:15 “but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua is conveying the idea that there is something intentional about following the Lord, it just doesn’t happen on accident.
Matthew chapter seven gives us some advice on how to have a Healthy Family. Here are a few of the principles that promote a healthy family.
1. Healthy Families are built on honesty. (vv.1-5)
2. Healthy Families are protected by faithfulness. (vv. 6)
3. Healthy Families are built on thoughtfulness. (vv. 7-12)
The golden rule V. 12 – living in right relationship with each other
4. Healthy Families rely on deliberate choices. (vv.13-14)
Everyone in the family has a part to play and the biggest part is becoming the best you, you can be and the Apostle Paul gives a good place to start Romans 12:2 “Don’t be conformed……….but renew your mind. and thats the way I see it in my market.
