Constitution: Genesis 18:19 "For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just so that the Lord will bring about for Abraham what He has promised him."
Does the Lord know you as the man? Can God say about you "I know that you will teach your family the Word of God"? If you want God to consider you His friend, then become a teacher in your home. Again, you have to be filled with the Word in order to give it to your family. So many men still don't understand and appreciate the value of the Word of God for the fulfillment of their purpose.
Many men just drop off their wives and children at church because they don't want to be responsible for their spiritual training. Abraham knew the Word, and he taught it. Remember, what God said:
Constitution: Genesis 18:17 Then the Lord said, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?"
A man who instructs his household in the Scriptures attracts God. No matter how much you pray and go to church, sing hymns; if you don't teach your household God's ways, if you don't give the Word of God prominence in your home, then God sees you as a weak man. Remember what God said in His constitution:
A deacon must be a husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well. I Timothy 3:12
Keep in mind, God doesn't measure your ability to lead by your religious or academic qualifications. He measures by your domestic qualifications. If you can take care of your children, then God says, "All is right, now you can lead My church." If you can manage your home, then you can manage the house of God.
The Thought for you today:
Many men still don't appreciate the value of the Word of God for the fulfillment of their purpose,.
Now take some time to read and study--Acts 10:1-23.
