Everything Starts at Home
2 Timothy 3:1- Remember this: There are some terrible times coming in the last days. 2 People will love only themselves and money. They will be proud and boast about themselves. They will abuse others with insults. They will not obey their parents. They will be ungrateful and against all that is pleasing to God. 3 They will have no love for others and will refuse to forgive anyone. They will talk about others to hurt them and will have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 People will turn against their friends. They will do foolish things without thinking and will be so proud of themselves. Instead of loving God, they will love pleasure. 5 They will go on pretending to be devoted to God, but they will refuse to let that “devotion” change the way they live. Stay away from these people!
If we pay attention to everything going on around us, it becomes obvious that we are living in the last days, just look at the prison system, graveyards and the streets of America and the world. What we are witnessing and experiencing in this life is a breakdown of families living without the Triune God (Almighty God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit). Without a relationship with the Triune God, no individual or family can fulfill God’s purpose for their life or lives. Many families have become so preoccupied with making sure that everything looks good to people outside the marriage that little time is devoted to making sure that the family relationships with God and one another are strong on the inside (spiritually, mentally and physically), which equip families to stand strong when the family experience the challenges of life.
