In our culture, the line between the roles of men and women has become increasingly blurred. This results in many families with weak husbands or no husbands at all. Rising crime and divorce rates bear sad testimony to the absence of male role models. It’s vital that fathers lead their families in the right direction, because the next generation depends on it.
No position has more potential to influence the future than that of being a mother. There’s no better role model for motherhood than Mary, who struggled as a young mom with several children, including her firstborn, Jesus, the Son of God. Her calling as a mom shows us how crucial motherhood is.
The family is under attack by the devil and our sinful culture, all determined to destroy marriage, your kids, and the moral values taught in the Scriptures. The foundation of any society is the family, because families produce the next generation. So what should believers do when culture conspires against our families?
All of us desire to be great. Some of us even desire to do great things for God, but is unholy ambition lurking beneath the surface? Are our motives pure? Jesus had some penetrating words for a mother who wanted her sons to sit beside him in the coming kingdom. In this message, we learn the difference between selfishness and greatness.
Many families have prodigal sons or daughters who’ve left home in rebellion against their parents’ values. The heartache is acute as moms and dads wonder where their children are and if they’re safe. There was one prodigal son who came home in disgrace only to find himself treated like royalty. The Gospel of Luke records the story, and it is a message of hope for all those who have children in the far country.
