The Mystery Marriage
Proverbs 23 By wisdom a house is built and by understanding it is established and by knowledge it’s rooms are filled with precious and good things.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27
So our marriages are to reflect who God is…Who is God?
3 things have to be there to have a biblical view of God…
God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply… Genesis 1:28a
Then God said, “Let earth bring forth living creatures after their kind; cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so. Genesis 1:24
And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:25
…and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:28b

GOD HELP MY FAMILY!
Psalm 127 1 Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. 2 In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves. 3 Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.
I. “God helps us BUILD our families.”
II. “God helps us PROTECT OUR FAMILY.”
III. “God helps us PROVIDE for our families.”
Children need a roof over their head, food on their table, and clothes on their back.
They need your attention, your affection, your guidance, and your good example.
They need to be disciplined in love.
They need to know that they are important to you, that you love them, and you enjoy spending time with them.
IV. God Will Help Me RAISE My Family.
Never let the world dictate to your family what is important….let God’s word and your faith family!!!
