Solomon has strong words to us about our families: “He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be a servant to the wise” (Proverbs 11:29). God has a high place for the family, and we must take these words seriously. How have you done at caring for, and protecting, your family? Have you given your children the time they deserve? Are you protecting your wife/ husband? The wise take time to ensure the health of their family.
