Caring for Our Families

by on July 1, 2011

This is a good article from last months Tabletalk magazine by John Piper on the importance of caring for our families by knowing and understanding the truths of Scripture. I commend it to you:

Caring for Our Families

Here is an excerpt:

“There are thousands of Christian families in the world who never have conversations like this, not at six or sixteen. I don’t think we have to look far, then, for the weakness of the church: the fun-oriented superficiality of many youth ministries that contribute to the stunning fall-out rate after high school. But how shall parents teach their children if the message they get week in and week out from the pulpit is that doctrine is unimportant? So, yes, I have a family to care for, and therefore I must understand the central doctrines of my faith — understand them so well that they can be translated for all the different ages of my children.”

This is a hugh task. Let us take seriously preaching to ourselves and our families.
