Family founded in Christ

 

       God created the family, making first the man and then the woman and giving them reproductive capabilities. In God’s plan they would together bring forth a human being who would be part of each of them. The family consists of a man and a woman who are married to each other and the children they have borne, and this is a biblical definition. The Scripture calls children a heritage of the Lord, Psalm 127 and describes the familial structure in vivid terms: “Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants about thy table: Psalm 128:3Psalm 128:3
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

3 Tu mujer será como vid que lleva fruto a los lados de tu casa; tus hijos, como plantas de olivo alrededor de tu mesa.

       A family is a perpetual relay of truth. God makes it very clear in his Word, in Deuteronomy as well as in many other places that children are to hear the truth from their parents. Truth about God was meant to be given to children by parents and grandparents: “Tell your sons and your sons’ sons . . .” “And when your son asks . . .”  Joel 13 True answers are to be given. Truth would not have been lost had it been handed down at the breakfast table, at lunch, at dinner, at bedtime, when out walking together, or when sitting together before a sunset or a fire. To the family God handed the responsibility for passing on to the generations of the earth knowledge about Him, about what had happened in past history, and about how to worship Him now.

       The excitement and the reality of all the Bible teaches should be a normal part of discussion; the Bible and other books should be read aloud together in the family. The reality of the family’s dependence upon God in prayer for guidance and his care cannot be supplied by the church. It must be lived day by day as the family prays together concerning a crisis, problems, or trivial incidents. Doubts must be discussed calmly but seriously, even with a five-year-old.  A preschool child may ask, “Who made the devil?” and be dealing with the whole problem of evil. The answer should be a positive, truthful explanation. Discussion should not be delayed until a child is some particular “age.” It must take place when the need for information surfaces and must continue when illustrations present themselves. Relaying truth takes time and imagination, and doing it properly involves treating a child of any age as a human being with value and importance. Children are people, personalities, and individuals. No two are alike, and each must be treated as a unique person from the very beginning. Initiate trust, deep confidence, and love at the earliest moments.

 

       A family is a formation center for human relationships. Tiny children can learn that people are more important than things, that human beings are made in the image of God and are therefore very special. How to treat people is not a subject to be lectured about; it should be taught in the middle of real life situations within the family. A child, propelled on feet sloshing along in muddy shoes, rushes into mother with a clump of wild flowers and weeds clutched tightly in a hot little hand. What is the response? “Get that mud out of this room! How many times have I told you . . .” Or, “What a lovely bunch of flowers! I’ll get a vase and water, and we’ll put them on the kitchen table.” Mother plants a kiss on a child glowing in the aftermath of affirmation. Then, “Honey, remember to get the mud off your shoes outside first. Try not to forget, will you?”   The scream, “Get out of here,” crushes and debilitates as it teaches a vivid lesson in how to treat other people and the relative value of persons and things. Human relationships on all levels are derived from essential childhood experiences.

APÉNDICE: ELOGIO DE LA MUJER VIRTUOSA e 10 »Mujer virtuosa, ¿quién la hallará? Su valor sobrepasa largamente al de las piedras preciosas. 11 El corazón de su marido confía en ella y no carecerá de ganancias. 12 De ella recibe el bien y no el mal todos los días de su vida. 13 Ella busca la lana y el lino, y trabaja gustosamente con sus manos. 14 Es como la nave del mercader, que trae su pan desde lejos. 15 Siendo aún de noche, se levanta para dar la comida a su familia y la ración a sus criadas.f 16 Considera la heredad y la compra, y con sus propias manos planta una viña. 17 Se ciñe firmemente la cintura y esfuerza sus brazos. 18 Ve que van bien sus negocios; su lámpara no se apaga de noche. 19 Aplica sus manos a la rueca y sus dedos manejan el huso. 20 Alarga su mano al pobre; extiende sus manos al menesteroso. 21 No teme por su familia cuando nieva, porque toda su familia va vestida de ropas abrigadas. 22 Ella se teje los tapices, y de lino fino y de púrpura es su vestido. 23 Su marido es conocido en las puertas de la ciudad, cuando se sienta con los ancianos del país. 24 Teje telas y las vende, y provee de cintas al mercader. 25 Fuerza y honor son su vestidura, y se ríe de lo por venir. 26 Abre su boca con sabiduría y la ley de la clemencia está en su lengua. 27 Considera la marcha de su casa y no come el pan de balde. 28 Sus hijos se levantan y la llaman bienaventurada, y su marido también la alaba: 29 “¡Muchas mujeres han hecho el bien, pero tú las sobrepasas a todas!”. 30 Engañosa es la gracia y vana la hermosura, pero la mujer que teme a Jehová,g esa será alabada. 31 ¡Ofrecedle del fruto de sus manos, y que en las puertas de la ciudad la alaben sus hechos!».

, didn’t sit in a corner doing nothing; she wasn’t a nonperson. She bought a field and landscaped it for a vineyard. She wove cloth from linen she had grown and made clothing for her family plus some to sell. She not only imported spices and rare foods but sold things in the marketplace. She also cared for the poor. However, all her work helped her husband to be known at the gates, she brought honor to her husband. Wives most bring honor to her husband, he should feel honor of her spiritual life, action and words. By honoring God she will also honor her husband, who will also feel honor to have her as his wife.

had time to be a good wife and mother; her husband praised her, and her children rose up and called her blessed. She didn’t neglect the things of the Lord, because she is described as one really close to the Lord. She spoke with wisdom, and kindness was in her tongue. The woman in Proverbs was skillful, energetic, and capable; yet she did not neglect her home.

 

       Expressions of love are an important ingredient in human relationships, and the family circle provides daily opportunities to demonstrate love in action. Love is not just a feeling; love is a choice. One chooses to love another person, and the choice must be made over and over again, day by day. Feeling is not the criterion for love. Love is a matter of reason, intellect, and decision. It is not enhanced by magnifying another’s faults but by dwelling on the lovely qualities and kindnesses and thoughtful attempts to please.  Love for one another and love for the Lord grow when we nourish them. The feelings and emotions of love are a result of daily choices. Love grows with time and care. Seeds planted in lush soil still need sunshine, water, fertilizer, and weeding to grow into healthy plants free of snails and bugs.  Love and time areessential ingredients in growing loving family relationships.

 

The important thing is that we teach and live the gospel.
