Family Ties

In this series, Dr. James Merritt will explain how he is absolutely convinced not just from a biblical perspective, but from a social and cultural perspective that the family is still a vital institution, and marriage is where the family begins. It is still God’s best plan for the beginning of the family and the continuation of the family. He will dive into the different pieces of a family and what the Bible has to say about each of them. And He will ultimately point us back to Scripture as we learn more about how God intended for the family to look, live, and love.

Bible Reference

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
