Did you know that less than 20% of churchgoers read the Bible daily?
Do you struggle to make time for daily Bible study?
That’s okay – and it doesn’t mean that you can’t draw meaning from individual verses as time allows.
The Bible has a lot to teach us about family, and we’ve compiled several beautiful verses that offer everyday wisdom relating to family life.
Keep reading for five beautiful Bible verses about family, love, and faith.
1.) Acts 10:2
‘He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly.’
Set an example. Your kids are always watching. Help with physical needs and pray for spiritual needs.
Remember prayer causes things to happen that would not happen if you didn’t pray!
2.) Exodus 20:12
‘Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord, your God is giving you.’
What role have your parents played in shaping who you are?
Whether you’re young or old, it’s really important to remember how much your family has helped you to learn, grow and succeed.
If you find yourself feeling distant from your relatives, return to this verse for some quiet contemplation.
3.) Proverbs 22:6
‘Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.’
Start teaching and training your children at a young age the ways of the Lord. It doesn’t mean your child will never turn away from it after they leave home. It means your training won’t leave their mind and when they mature they will realize you (and God) were right!
4.) Proverbs 1:8-9
We all know how tricky it can be to persuade kids to listen to their parents’ advice.’
This verse speaks to the value of learning from what your parents have to say, which is a welcome reminder to people of all ages.

5.) Genesis 28:14
