Colossians 3:20 – Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.

Jeremiah 42:6 – Whether it is favorable or unfavorable, we will obey the LORD our God, to whom we are sending you, so that it will go well with us, for we will obey the LORD our God.

We should not raise a family without believing that obedience is possible. We should not raise a family without valuing obedience over other distractions. Instead of feelings choose faith. Instead of opinions choose facts.Instead of what the world thinks choose what the Word says.
