The Future of the Christian Family

VVhat does God have in store for Chrtistian families? God answers that question for us in the Bible in many ways.

"The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous will stand," Proverbs 12:7.

From some quarter an unparalleled catastrophe will overthrow and overwhelm the godless, so that they will never rise again. It is all over for them. On the other hand, the family of the righteous withstands the storms that sweep away the godless. A righteous family is a family that trusts in Christ and His righteousness alone for salvation; and, who out of gratitude, follows the directions and instructions of God's Word for life.

"The house of the wicked will be destroyed, but the tent of the upright will flourish," Proverbs 14:11.
