The Home First
The first institution in the bible was not the Church. It was the family that began with God creating Adam & Eve. We know that long down the road came the Church. However, the family is still the main design for socialization. Therefore, it is vital that the family remain a focal point & strong unit for both the culture & the kingdom of God.
Don Whitney believes that the family should not merely survive, but thrive and that occurs when Christ is the head of the home. But how does Christ become welcome in our homes? Perhaps through family worship…which is a time that occurs often for the purpose of the family recognizing God’s providence in their lives.
The term Family Worship may scare off people because the concept is so foreign to families these days. But fear not, for this resource is very uncomplicated and very understandable for the family.
This book is not long, but it does carry much weight in that it makes a case for why family worship matters & how family worship happens. If you are a family that does not know where to start or you need to reignite this concept into your family lifestyle, then this is the book resource for you.
