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 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

Children`s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.- Proverbs 17:6

Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing in value.- Proverbs 31:11

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.- Romans 12:9

A wife of nobel character who can find? she is worth far more than rubies.- Proverbs 31:10

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

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.- Colossians 3:13

So that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependant on anybody.- 1 Thessalonians 4:12

House and wealth are inherited from the parents, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.- Proverbs 19:14

      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.
