Caring for family members

Families take care of your elderly, widows, parents

  • 1 Tim 5:4 (NIV) But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion
    into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.
  • 1 Tim 5:8 (NIV) If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
  • 1 Tim 5:16 (NIV) If any woman who is a believer has widows in her family, she should help them and not let the church be burdened with them, so that the church can help those widows who are really in need.
  • The love between husbands and wives

  • Gen 2:23-24 (NIV) The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” 24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
  • Eccl 9:9 (NIV) Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun– all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.
  • Mark 10:7-9 (NIV) ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8 and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
  • Eph 5:22-30 (NIV) 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
    24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church–
    30 for we are members of his body.
  • 1 Peter 3:7 (NIV) Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift
    of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
  • Titus 2:4-5 (NIV) Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
  • Titus 2:4-5 (NIV) Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
  • Parents must train their children about God

  • Prov 22:6 (NIV) Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
  • Psalms 78:4-7 (NIV) We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. 5 He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children, 6 so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.
    7 Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.
  • Deut 11:19-21 (NIV) Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk
    along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the
    days of your children may be many in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.
  • Children’s love and honor for their parents

  • Ex 20:12 (NIV) “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
  • Lev 19:3 (NIV) “‘Each of you must respect his mother and father, and you must observe my Sabbaths. I am the LORD your God.
  • Deut 27:16 (NIV) “Cursed is the man who dishonors his father or his mother.” Then all the people shall say, “Amen!”
  • Prov 1:8 (NIV) Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
  • Matt 15:4 (NIV) For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’
  • Prov 23:22 (NIV) Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.
