Do you think it is . . .
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
“Happy are those hearing the word of God and keeping it!”—Luke 11:28, New World Translation.
WHAT THAT CAN MEAN FOR YOU
Finding real love.—Ephesians 5:28, 29.
Enjoying genuine respect.—Ephesians 5:33.
Having true security.—Mark 10:6-9.
CAN WE REALLY BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS?
Yes, for at least two reasons:
God is the Originator of family life. The Bible says that “every family . . . owes its name” to Jehovah God. (Ephesians 3:14, 15) In other words, the family unit exists because Jehovah created it. Why is that significant?
Consider: If you were enjoying a tasty meal and wanted to learn its ingredients, whom would you ask? Logically, the person who prepared it.
Likewise, to discover the ingredients for a happy family life, we do well to look to Jehovah, the Originator of the family arrangement.—Genesis 2:18-24.
God cares about you. Families are wise to seek Jehovah’s advice, which he provides through his Word. Why? “Because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:6, 7) Jehovah has your best interests at heart—and his counsel always works!—Proverbs 3:5, 6; Isaiah 48:17, 18.
TO THINK ABOUT
How can you be a good husband, wife, or parent?
The Bible answers that question at EPHESIANS 5:1, 2 and COLOSSIANS 3:18-21.
