How does the Christian ideal for family relationships contrast with today s secular philosophy?
What role does the family play in the church?
Read Ephesians 5:21 33. How important is the family in Scripture?
Read Acts 2:44 47; 16:14 15, 40; and Philippians 4:10 18. What examples of support from the Christian community do we find in these verses?
Sample application questions:
In what specific ways has your church encouraged and supported you and your family? How has your family benefited from this support?
From where does your family draw strength and support? From nearby relatives? From friends and neighbors? From your church?
