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


May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.- Proverbs 5:18

All hard work brings profit, but mere talk only leads to poverty.- Proverbs 14:23


But wisdom is proved right by all her children.- Luke 7:35


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


No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am the Lord. - Leviticus18:15

      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

      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.
