Beloved of Christ Jesus, the psalmist in Psalm 128 gives us the main foundation for having a blessed and happy family. This main foundation is the fear God and to walk in His ways (verse 1). Proverbs 14:26 also says; “In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, and His children will have a place of refuge.” The fear of God is very important in the life of believers. Without the fear of God one would tend to think, speak and act according to his own will. The Bible reminds us in Proverbs 3:7, “Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil.” The fear of God will begin to grow when one realizes the holiness, justice, and righteousness of God. This will cause him to see God with reverence and awe. The fear of God should be the main foundation of every Christian family. It enables husband and wife to carry out their roles in accordance with the word of God where they support and strengthen each other. And through their life examples they will be able to bring their children up to love God. In other words, a God-fearing family practice the principles of the Word of God persistently in their daily life.
Beloved of Jesus, do you want your family to be happy and blessed? Thus, have a heart that fears God only. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen !
