Over at the Gender Blog of the Council of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood they have featured an article in the recent edition of the Journal of Biblical Manhood & Womanhood. Every father should take the time to read this article.
The bullet-points that this great article fills out with articulate insightfulness are:
- The Scriptural Mandate
- Covenantal Responsibilities of Parents
- Promoting Family Religion
- The Nature and Content of Family Worship
- Family-Based Renewal of Congregational Christianity
- The Family Pew
- The Lords Day
- Family Worship
- A Simpler Life
A few choice quotes to whet the appetite:
“Just how seriously God takes the family can be seen by looking at his law. Four of the ten commandments are directly related to the family.”
“…the family is Gods divinely appointed “small group” discipleship program. The family is the first place that God has appointed for teaching and learning about God and godliness.”
“Our children will see what is really important to us, and it will either contradict or confirm our words about Christ and Christianity to them.”
Reading this one helpful article could have the fruitfulness of reading a half-dozen current books on the same topic. The authors have packed this one resource full of information to equip and edify any household head to be ready for duty, and ready to be a conduit of God’s grace in his home!
