I borrowed the following from desiringGod.org:
Besides our relationship with our heavenly Father, there is nothing more important than our relationship with our family. It is the building block of our churches, communities, and nation. So when we neglect our families, the foundation of our churches and nation crumbles, and our homes begin to splinter.
If we desire to fulfill God’s calling in our lives and to make a difference in other’s lives for eternity, then we must start within our families. Whether single or married, with children or not, we all have a part in God’s calling to build strong spiritual families.
What a great reminder that our families should be our top priority...not work, school, and not even church. If you can't manage your own household, why would you ever expect to be able to manage anything else?
I am so thankful for my husband who does a wonderful job leading our family. I cannot imagine anyone else that I would rather have right beside me as we teach and train our boys to love the Lord.
