Functional Families

We hear a lot about dysfunctional families, but what about functional families? What does a healthy family look like? The most fundamental sign of a healthy family is an attitude of service. The husband serves the wife and she serves him. Together they serve the children and children learn to serve parents. Does that sound like your family? You don’t have to possess warm feelings for your husband in order to serve him, but you do need an intimate relationship with God. God does not want you to serve out of duty, but out of a heart that has been touched by His love. Through you, God’s love flows to bless your family. It all begins with a prayer, “Father, give me the attitude of Christ toward my family.”
