S'More

Yesterday looking at Psalm 96:7 – 10 we noticed that the Lord asked us to “ascribe” to Him who He is with our family.  That expectation has been consistent throughout the arc of Bible history.
Family is central to God's plan of redemption.
He started with a family, Adam and Eve.
  • When He chose to start over He started with a family, Noah’s
  • When He began to build the nation of Israel He started with a family, Abram and Sarah.
  • It was His expectation that His story would be transmitted through family.  Deuteronomy 6: 6 – 7; 20; Psalm 78:4 – 8.
This has profound implications on our choices when it comes to rearing our children and how we handle our careers and other life choices.  Paul reinforces this in his exhortations on the family in Ephesians 5:16 – 6:4 and Colossians 3:18 – 4:1.

We do well to pay attention.
