The Discussion Continues:

Ok, so we had a great time last weekend discussing how God has a great model after which the Christian family should pattern itself. You all joined in to express how there are terrific blessings that come by living in obedience to the Lord's ways, and sadly, tremendous sorrow when we get off course. We also established that it is so easy to get off course. Selfishness and busyness can really ruin our families quite rapidly if we leave them unchecked.

So what advice do you have for the family who is going off course? What if it feels to them that there is simply no way of return? They WANT what is right, but are convinced that there is just no rectifying their situation. Please comment...

  1. Isaiah 30:18 says, "The Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!" When we are in a situation like you described, we need to let go of our own struggles to resolve the situation and trust in Him. We won't be able to do it on our own, but He will help us back on the road to recovery and a right walk with Him.
