Six Family Principles to Live By

Many problems in our homes, and in our parenting could and would be avoided if we simply made Biblical family principles to live by. Living our life based on Godly principles means that many decisions are already made for us before we ever face the decisions.

I love these two quotes by Dr. James Dobson:

“The old principles derived from the Scriptures are still right; they’re still true and valid, even if the world ignores them.”

“Biblical principles offer the most healthy approach to family living, even turning stress to our advantage.”

Do you have family principles in your home? If not, here are a 6 good family principles to live by that our Pastor  shared with us on Sunday.

1. Don’t make a decision based on convenience.

 

2. Don’t make short-term decisions without considering long-term results.

 

3. Don’t put physical wants (like more or nicer things) ahead of spiritual needs.

 

4. Don’t make decisions based on fear.

 

5. Get counsel about your decisions.

 

6. Get content where you are.

What are some principles that you would add to this list for your family?

  1. obviously like your web site however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and
    I find it very bothersome to inform the truth on the other
    hand I will certainly come back again.

  2. Excellent items from you, man. I’ve remember your stuff previous to and you
    are just extremely great. I actually like
    what you’ve bought right here, certainly like what you are saying
    and the way in which through which you say it.
    You are making it entertaining and you continue to care
    for to keep it smart. I can not wait to learn far more from you.
    This is really a terrific website.

  3. Heather, I think number 1 is my favorite too — it’s just comes naturally to say no or yes depending on the convenience, rather than thinking through it!

  4. One of the best things I ever learned to do as a mother is to say, “Let me think about it.” I am not a good decision maker, so I need extra time to do all of the things you mentioned. #1 I love. Too many times the temptation is to do just that! Thank you for the reminder!
