Religion in the Home
Genesis 2:23-24 “At
last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh
from my flesh! She will be called
‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’” 24 This explains why
a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are
united into one.

your children onto the right path, and
when they are older, they will not leave it.

to you: ‘Please forgive your brothers for the great wrong they did to you—for
their sin in treating you so cruelly.’ So we, the servants of the God of your
father, beg you to forgive our sin.” When Joseph received the message, he broke
down and wept.
5. Religion in the Home
“But watch out! Be careful never to forget what you yourself have seen. Do not
let these memories escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to
pass them on to your children and grandchildren. 10 Never forget the
day when you stood before the Lord your God at Mount
Sinai, where he told me, ‘Summon the people before me, and I
will personally instruct them. Then they will learn to fear me as long as they
live, and they will teach their children to fear me also.’
Joshua 24:14-15 “So
fear the Lord and serve him wholeheartedly. Put away forever the idols
your ancestors worshiped when they lived beyond the Euphrates
River and in Egypt. Serve
the Lord alone. 15 But if
you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you
prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates?
Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for
me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
Acts 10:2 He was a
devout, God-fearing man, as was everyone in his household. He gave generously
to the poor and prayed regularly to God.
Acts 16:15 She was
baptized along with other members of her household, and she asked us to be her
guests. “If you agree that I am a true believer in the Lord,” she said, “come
and stay at my home.” And she urged us until we agreed.
