Ancient fortresses had walls, gates, and guards. It’s high time for dads to put on some armor and start protecting their kids against those who want to corrupt them. Fathers, are you ready for a real challenge?

Much of the anguish in today’s families can be traced to fractured relationships between fathers and their children. Can we open those clenched fists and hearts, restoring dialogue and love to broken ties with our fathers?

There is one man whose imprint on our lives can never be erased. Even from the grave we feel the impact of our fathers. In the Bible, fathers are responsible for the spiritual well-being of their wives and children.

The ideal mom draws strength from the Lord, living a life of faithfulness to her calling as a wife and mother. This kind of woman was exemplified in the book of Proverbs. If our culture had more mothers like her, our families would be in much better shape.

Some think ideal women have perfect hair, perfect complexion, and probably a very imperfect husband. Let’s forget the fashion magazines, and focus on the Bible’s description of a perfect and godly woman.

Motherhood is key to a nation’s survival, as mothers bear and train the next generation. The Bible exalts mothers, giving them principles by which they can fulfill their role. Motherhood is a vital component in rebuilding fractured families.

When the family breaks down, culture itself breaks down. Single-parent homes face enormous obstacles. But there is a resource that can prevent marriages from shattering, and it comes to us from the finished work of Christ.

Many marriages begin happily, but quickly descend into conflict. We display the latent rebellion that’s marked all of us since Adam and Eve. God has a solution to humanity’s deepest problems; He can heal broken relationships.

Today’s endangered species is the family. Fractured, broken, stressed, dysfunctional. All of these words describe a crisis in the most basic unit of society. If the church does not act to save the family, who will? The Scriptures have the answers for what ails our homes.

At the end of all things is a man on a white horse. Jesus is that man. When the last chapter about planet Earth is played out, it will be about Him. The end of the Drama of Redemption and the beginning of eternity will glorify Christ.
