Day 108 Family
Monday, January 9, 2017
Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man." That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. - Genesis 2:22-24
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. - Psalm 32:8
Even good things, like enjoying your work, can crowd out the best things, like loving your family. When God rings a warning bell that we are neglecting areas of importance, we need to listen, gratefully, and hasten to make changes before it's too late.
Fix my attention, Lord! Help me to identify my imbalances and areas of neglect.
