When we read the Bible, we often find scenes of God’s goodness toward his people and compassion toward those that are in trouble. One such occasion that we can look at in this regard is when Jesus healed a woman named Mary, when she became pregnant. As we read the Bible, we find that Jesus used the power of his fingers to heal her of many ailments and to restore her to perfect health and beauty. Mary remained with her family, and cared for all her family members, including her daughter Mary.
How does this sound to you as a Christian? I think that caring for our family means that we have to take care of our own first. It is an amazing thing that God gave us His only begotten son to give to his mother, which was then brought into the world by his Father. However, Jesus set the example by caring for those who were under his care. So, it is absolutely necessary for Christians to care for one another.
Not only is caring for family members important, but it is equally important to care for God. In fact, Jesus has taught us that he does not judge nor condemn, but only shows love. He invited us to enter into his throne room, and there, we will be able to see the throne of grace. This is why we need to show love for each other. We need to ask the love of our family members first. We cannot expect love from anyone else if we do not ask it from him first.
Jesus did not judge or condemn a woman because she had committed a crime, but rather offered her a chance to repent on her own by telling her that if she keeps on sinning, she will end up with a blood-guiltful life. If a family member does something wrong, this does not mean that they are going to get divorced or lose their family. The first thing we need to do is discuss the situation with the entire family. We should also pray and put our faith in God that he will guide our family in the right direction.
Although God is our source of hope and love, He also gives us various rules and regulations, which we need to follow. One of these rules says that a family member is to be treated with respect. We also need to teach our children about respecting each other. When we treat another person with respect, we tend to treat them well, and when we don’t, we sometimes create conflicts and situations where problems may arise.
Children have many influences over their lives. One of the parents’ influence on the child is through the way they act toward others. If the child is always trying to get their own way, this is not a good example to the child. It is important for the child to see that their actions do not reflect on their family. Sometimes the child may purposely trouble another family member because they know they can get in trouble if they do not follow the rules. So it is our job as parents to ensure that all family members follow the rules and observe decorum.
There are certain times when family members need to be reminded of what is right or wrong. These occasions are very rare, but it does happen from time to time. During these times, if there is a problem between family members, they should sit down together and talk about it. Once the problem has been resolved, then the family member that talked about it needs to make a pledge to remember never to do it again.
A family caring approach to family dynamics is necessary because problems tend to occur when members are left to their own devices. The best solution to this problem is for each family member to have a job that needs to be done. If that family member works outside the home, let the rest of the family know so they can watch out for each other. If the family member works at home, make sure everyone in the family knows how to reach him or her if they need help. Also provide extra supervision during times when the family member is away. Family members that love each other will usually work better when they are able to rely on one another.
