Caring for our family

Bro. D.G.S Dhinakaran

 It is incumbent on every breadwinner that he should adequately provide for the future of every one of those who are solely dependent on him, such as his wife and children, so that they may live without want in due course. If not anyone knows how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church? (1Timothy 3:5).  To be entrusted by God with greater things, we need to be faithful in smaller things.  

A few devout parents commit grave errors in managing their finance.  Without having a foresight, they spend everything.  They do not heed to the sane advice of elders either. Alas! All of a sudden, they would suffer from sudden demands or heavy burden of debt and their children suffer a lot under this yoke. Those children are in a helpless condition and live a life of misery in a confused state of mind.  In the Bible, we read about a responsible mother-in-law Naomi who told to her daughter-in-law Ruth, “My daughter, should I not try to find a home for you, where you will be well provided for?” (Ruth 3:1).  As she told, she settled the life of Ruth with the wisdom of God. In the same way, it is the bounden duty of us to seek after the welfare of our dependents. 
It is also an act of prudence and forethought for the wise to plan ahead of how they should counter any difficulty or loss that may arise in their business ventures, or other vocational pursuits they are engaged with. So, “Do not be over righteous, neither be over wise - why destroy yourself?” (Ecclesiastes 7:16).  Submit your every plan and desire to the Lord.  Seek His wisdom and revelation in everything.  Allow God’s Word to work out everything in you and for you.  This will make your boat to sail safe!  
Prayer:
Dear Father,

I thank You for the family You have provided me.  I bless every member in my family.  I consider it as a blessing to be in a position to take care of them. Enable me to provide their every need and serve them with love.  Fill me with Your wisdom to make right decisions for my family.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
