6/12/13 Daily Devotion

1 Timothy 3:5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?)

This verse is associated with the qualifications of a church leader. If a person cannot manage his own household, how then can he manage the power and direction of the church? This should not only be attached to leaders within the church. As Christians, we must all learn how to manage our own families according to the Word of God. This does not mean our families will be perfect, but there should be evidence that we have been instilling within them the proper way to conduct themselves in order to bring honor and glory to God through their lives upon this earth. This is done in many ways, but the most powerful is through personal example. If we are living the life, our actions, reactions and choices of words will influence our families in a positive light. Are you bringing a positive influence into the lives of your family?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me demonstrate to my family Your presence within my life.
