These fifty-two profound and thoughtful lessons on the Christian family are designed to be read very slowly, one per day or even one per week. Twenty-six are drawn from the Old Testament and twenty-six from the New. Each day's lesson consists of a verse from Scripture, a teaching, and a closing prayer. Learn the way God intended a home to be. The parents' love for God and each other will then become the model for their children. Believing parents need to understand what it means to be redeemed not only as individuals but also as a family. God's promises are to our offspring as well as to ourselves. As Pastor Murray shows, the Bible is full of examples that demonstrate God's intentions for the family. Above all, Jesus' call is to little children as much as to adults. This edition includes Andrew Murray's notes on baptism and on the Church's duty to parents.
