It’s all too easy to get lost in binging shows and scrolling for hours that we forget our kids are being raised in this culture. Addictions and immoral media corrupt our souls. As the culture decays, it’s high time for parents to take action to protect their kids. Pastor Lutzer shows us how, with a set of relevant instructions for parents to help keep your family safe in the days ahead.

Families are like chains: they break at the weakest link. And when that broken link is dad, the family is in serious trouble. That happened with King David. He was a mighty warrior in battle but an uninvolved father at home. What can we learn from his dysfunctional family?

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 both dialogue and love? Can we work to mend the broken ties with our fathers?

Some think ideal women have perfect hair or complexions. But we should forget the airbrushed profiles and focus instead on the Bible’s description of a truly godly woman. The ideal mom, exemplified in Proverbs, draws strength from the Lord, living a life of faithfulness to her calling as a wife and mother.

Motherhood is key to a nation’s survival since 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.

Many marriages begin happily, but quickly descend into conflict. We display the hidden 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.

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.

Do you ever wonder what eternity will be like? The best description we have is that of the Holy City, the New Jerusalem. Here, the saints will enjoy perfect health, holy unity, and unhindered worship, serving God together into “the ages of the ages.”

After the Millennium, heaven will literally descend to earth in the form of the New Jerusalem. This spectacular city will be the forever home of the redeemed from all the ages. It’s what Jesus referred to when He said, “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places.”
