Today, November 22nd, marks the beginning of two significant and unique milestones: National Bible Week and National Family Week.
They are both significant in that our Heavenly Father has ordained the family unit as an institution created to bring the utmost fulfillment and enjoyment for a man and a woman. Further, the Bible, our ultimate roadmap for a successful natural and Christian life on earth, specifically addresses EVERY concern, issue, situation, circumstance and/or dilemna that will ever come our way as well as how to solve problems and make decisions.
Due to Abram’s obedience to God, all families are blessed for all generations. This represents a covenant between God and Abraham.
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. – Genesis 12:1-3 KJV
Along with blessing of the family unit, God left us his written Word – The B-I-B-L-E: Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth. The Bible is the inherent Word of God and is intended for our growth, development and maturity as Christian men and women. It always provides the answer to all of our questions about this life and what it means to have purpose and spiritual gifts to make this world a much better place – using the common theme of LOVE throughout.
Take heed of your family and Bible this week through prayer, reflection, meditation and thought. When you do, you will realize just how blessed you are!
