Family Rules

In our Bible Reading today, Paul lists some rules for families. He gives five important rules: 1) “Wives, be willing to serve your husbands” (verse 18). 2) “Husbands, love your wives, and be gentle to them” (verse 19). 3) “Children, obey your parents in all things” (verse 20). 4) “Fathers, don’t frustrate your children” (verse 21). 5) “Servants, obey your masters in all things” (verse 22).
These five rules cover most of the relationships that we have with other people on earth. If we do these things, we will be obeying God and pleasing Him. Sometimes it is hard to obey these rules, but we need to stop being stubborn and submit to God.
These rules show us that it is very important for us to respect each other. When Jesus was on earth, He showed respect for His mother and His family. If we respect our family members, we show that we respect God, too.
Be like Jesus today. Show respect for your family. Then you will please God.
