Building a Godly Home

By David & Angie Benjamin, Contributing Writers


Is that time of the year again; when people set goals for the New Year.

As we thought of ours and the ones for our marriage, there’s something we really want to emphasize this year. One we want to continue striving for : Building a Godly Home.

How do you build a strong Godly Home? What’s its foundation? Nothing but God’s word.

Here I have compiled six Bible verses that we will keep on looking at, meditating on and even memorizing :)

As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. -Joshua 24:14 NIV

Jesus replied, “All who love Me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and We will come and make Our Home with each of them.” – John 14:23 NLT

Don’t for a minute let this Book of the Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. – Joshua 1:8 The Message

“I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me.” says the Lord Almighty.- 2 Corinthians 6:18 ESV

Bow in prayer before the Father from whom every family in heaven and on earth gets its true name. – Ephesians 3:14-15 NCV

I look up to the mountains – does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! – Psalm 121:1-2 NLT

“All the wealth in the world cannot be compared with the happiness of living together happily united” – Margaret of Youville

We wish you a blessed 2014.

May the Lord guide you, keep you and prosper you.
