Matters of the heart... as a family, learn how to live righteously Jesus' way!
17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
37 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
Ask for forgiveness, if you have hurt or offended someone and you know you have hurt that person. Do this with sincerity from your heart. Ask God to give you the courage to make amends.
One way to do this is to use the “Seven A’s of a Biblical Confession" (Relational Wisdom 360)
Come together for a family meal, then have everyone take turns building one another up. Everyone gets a chance to be in the "hot seat," meaning each person will be the one to get encouraged by the rest of the family. Share ways you have seen each other growing and changing. Share the ways you are thankful for one another. After everyone has a chance to share a few things, move on the next family member to be in the hot seat. This could also be a great opportunity for family members to confess ways they have sinned against one another.
