Topic: Sustainable Family 1 [Monday, 11th September 2017]

For this cause I bow my knees unto God…of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. Ephesians 3:14-15

Every family in the world, especially those that are in Christ, are important to God. God wants every family to not only fulfil the purpose why He brought them together, but He also want them to be sustainable and progressive. Most times, couples come together without any real plan on how to run their families in an efficient and sustainable way. Every couple should have a plan for their families. God, our Father, has a plan for us, even before we came into the world. He said in Jeremiah 1:5: “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”

Scriptures enjoy you in Ephesians 5:1 to “imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children.” Most married couples end their family planning on just how many children they will give birth to. While that is good, it is instructive to note that that is not all there is to family planning. Yes, we don’t have control over future occurrences, but nothing stops us from having future plans in every facet of our families. A future that is not planned for will jolt us. And this jolting is avoidable only if, married couples take their time to plan their families, even before tying the nuptial knot.

This series on ‘Sustainable Family’ will teach us what to and how to plan for the various facets of our families, so that our families can radiate the glory of the Lord. Pay heed to the principles that will be discussed as God will be ministering to our families, whether you are married or intending to get married. God is interested in the sustainability and progressive growth of each family, because He wants to use each family to show forth His wisdom. As we imbibe these principles and do an in-depth family planning, it is my prayer that the beauty of God will be known in our families.

Keep winning daily.


Dear Lord, thank You for every family in the world. I ask that Your glory will be seen in them and that they shall be sustainable and grow progressively, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
