circumstance that can rob us of our joy if we know that the key
to our present welfare and future destiny lies in Christ alone.

of confusion but of peace" (I Corinthians 14:33).

Family members need to be reminded that love, not perfection,
is the goal.

acts of kindness, respect, humility and love.

nvironment in which every member of the family learns how to
live by studying Scripture, praying and spending time in God's presence.
|6.||God's Purposes—A Christian home is a place where the family's |
goals are founded upon His values and the vision for the future
is consistent with His plan.
