Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. (Psalms 128:3)
God is very much interested in the families of the world. He has shown His commitment to families by always looking out to help the heads of the families He has had encounter with. From Adam to Abraham, from Isaac to David, the family has always been of great importance to God. Family bonding is very important to Him. And He showed this by emphasizing we set up families with people of the same faith.
In 2 Corinthians 6:14, scriptures say: "be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" Family bonding starts with the faith of both the man and woman. If they are different and cannot come to a middle ground of compromise, then there is no way they would ever bond. And two cannot walk together except they are in agreement (Amos3:3).
There must be a synegy in the family, it is very essential. In the family where there is synegy, the anointing of God is ever present (Psalms 133:1-2). Psalms 133:3 says: "...for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore." The blessing of Lord that makes rich and adds no sorrow will be ever present when families are well bonded together in love. This is why families must endeavour "to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace" (Ephesians 4:3). Family bonding is of great gain and Satan has less access to wreck havoc in a family that is well bonded.
Keep winning daily.
Endeavour to build a strong family unit. Make sure your family members embrace Christ. That is the beginning of real family bonding.
