The Kitchen Table Devotions: The Game of Life Day 44
God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:28
Keep sacred what is sacred or be scared by what is scary. The home or the family is a God idea. It reflects God’s compassion and care for His people. God gave us the privilege of reproducing and the idea of home and family to grow and to raise children in a relationship with Him. The Home and family is a God idea and because it is a God idea it will be a blessing to all involved who keep is sacred to the Lord. The same God who said “Be fruitful and multiply” also said, “fill the earth, subdue it, and rule…” Everyone in the family is to learn to rule and reign in life and over life with God. Never forget what family is about and never make it something that it is not supposed to be because everyone in the family will be blessed or cursed by the decisions we make. In the family we are to be schooled and strengthen in the compassion, care, and competence of God. The Bible says, “In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence, and his children will have refuge. The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, that one may avoid the snares of death. (Proverbs 14:26-27) Provers 27:8 says, “Like a bird that wanders from her nest, so is a man who wanders from his home.” The Home is God’s idea, honor it!
