25 Bible Verses About Family Happiness
It is often said that the family is a domestic church. If this is so, then the family should also be seen as the body of Christ and therefore, the qualities and foundation upon which the church is built, should be found in a family too. God’s creation and plan is beautiful and the family is one of them, this wonderful group of people having the same blood flow through their veins and being alike in one way or the other. God is indeed wise in his works. Still, God has created, it is then left for us, to uphold and preserve through his grace that which he has created. The virtue of love, joy, and peace which is in the body of Christ, is expected in the family of God also, alongside this, God has laid down certain commands, which should be implemented and upheld in every family.
It is through obedience to these words, that the ever-abiding love, joy and peace of Christ, would dwell in a family. God’s presence will always be found in a family that obeys his words.
