Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.
The family is the heart of the church, the heart of the community and the heart of the nation. When the heart is sick the rest of the body will be sick. When the family is sick the church, society, nation and entire world will be sick.
As Christians we are to allow the life to spring up in our homes and families and flow to others so that they can be touched and blessed by our family.
As parents, we have to stop living everyday as usual and really sit down and ask ourselves:
How is my family blessing others?
What is flowing out from my family?
As a parent, am I teaching my children to be blessings or am I living a life that reflects a “curse” to them?
Are my neighbours, community, church, nation blessed because of how we leave as a family?
This is why I am so glad that we have started our Labours of Love. It is a way us to work as a family to bless others and share God’s love with others so that they can come to Him and be saved.
So let’s ask the Lord to heal our hearts –our families- so that the world can be blessed.
