Family is a Gift from God!

I recently created a wall calender for my home, featuring scriptures regarding the family. I came across a few popular ones and others. The bible has numerous important points regarding family values, including truths to build and keep the family strong. Here are 20 scriptures which I have selected for this hub using BibleGateway.com. Enjoy.

Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with a promise.- Ephesians 6:2

He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect.- 1 Timothy 3:4

Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.- Proverbs 31:28

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. - 1 Peter 4:8

A rod and reprimand impart wisdom, but a child left undisciplined disgraces it`s mother.- Proverbs 29:15

Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome, and nagging wife.- Proverbs 21:19

A wife of nobel character is her husband`s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.- Proverbs 12:4

However, each one of you should love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. - Ephesians 5:33

Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.- Psalm 128:3

Beautifully done...This is a great idea in creating a personal calendar out of scriptures and photos. It seems to make the calendar more special for your family.

Hi, dear friend of truth, thankyou for your comment. We have moved into a new home and I thought a personalised calender would add something special. It should arrive in a few days, I`m excited.

Blessings to you
