Children of God must be responsible and care for welfare of their family. We must ensure God is glorified in our homes. (1 Peter 3:1-8).
God surely promotes love among family members. He expects us to be kind towards one another.
There is no exception for the rule of true love. Believers must love their fellow Christians as Christ love and died for them. More importantly, we must love people who are closer to us – Which are our family members!
Believers may be indirectly responsible for welfare of others, but we are directly responsible for welfare of our family members! Our family deserves *first class attention* from us.
Christians must genuinely express sincere love towards our family members. Husband must love his wife; wife must love her husband. Parents must love their children, and children must love and respect their parents.
Any child of God who ignores the call to care for his (or her) family is simply not practicing true Christianity! How can a Christian claim he loves God or other people while he has neglected his family? God definitely despise such practice!
God can only be pleased when a person who claims to love him is not hypocritical. Believers must love family members in a manner that glorifies God.
However, it is understood that family members have differences, but we must not allow the differences to prevent us from effectively performing our roles.
Every child of God must make a significant effort to put devil to shame in his (or her) family. We must demonstrate true and thorough love of Jesus to glorify God.
