“Family Values”


And every

daughter, that possesseth an inheritance in any tribe of the children of Israel, shall bewife unto one of the family of the tribe of her father, that the children of Israel may enjoy every man the inheritance of his fathers



And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? Behold, my

family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.

JUDGES 18:19

And they said unto him, Hold thy peace, lay thine hand upon thy mouth, and go with us, and be to us a
father and a priest: is it better for thee to be a priest unto the house of one man, or that thou be a priest unto a tribe
and a family in Israel?

1SAMUEL 9:21

And Saul answered and said, Am not I a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel? And my

family the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin? Wherefore then speakest thou so to me?

1 SAMUEL 10:21

When he had caused the tribe of Benjamin to come near by their

families, the family of Matri was taken, and Saul the son of Kish was taken: and when they sought him, he could not be found.

1 SAMUEL 20:29
And he said, Let me go, I pray thee; for our family hath a sacrifice in the city, and my brother, he hath commanded me to be there: and now, if I have found favour in thine eyes, let me get away, I pray thee, and see my brethren.Therefore he cometh not unto the king’s table.
And the ark of God remained with the family of Obededom in his house three months. And the LORD blessed the
house of Obededom, and all that he had.
Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.  Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wifeunto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife


But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, orchildren, or lands,
for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.


So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

1 PETER 3:7

Likewise, ye husbandsdwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel
, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

LUKE 15:11-32 

And he said, A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.


Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.


If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall yourFather
which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?


But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:


One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,Of whom the whole family
in heaven and earth is named,
