Topic: Deuteronomy 6:4-9
And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart. Deuteronomy 6:6
We watch a lot of football at our house, and we understand that teamwork is important. Marriage also requires working together. My football-saturated imagination pictures marriage and family like this:
God, as Team Owner and General Manager, provides ability, location, and resources needed to play. Dad serves as head coach. He is responsible for discipline, health conditioning, and for calling plays. The Bible is his official playbook. Mom serves as offensive and defensive coordinator. She consults with dad to make sure all plays are effective in gaining positive yardage, while attacks from the enemy are properly countered. All team members (children) should obey and listen closely to their coaches and General Manager. They are responsible for learning the plays and for conditioning themselves so they will be able to lead their own expansion teams in the future!
Adhering to God's Word makes a family strong.
Father, thank You for strengthening my family.
