HOME: The First Lesson

Speaker: Jeremy Flanagan


There is no perfect HOME. There are no perfect parents. No perfect kids. When you look at families in the Bible this should be clear. The first home had one brother murder another. A fight in Abraham’s household has led to all the war in the Middle East surrounding Israel and Islamic nations. Israel had a civil war between David and one of his sons. So there are no perfect HOMES. But for the next few weeks we are going to cover some of the fundamental principles that will help us build the type of HOME that not only we want, but one that honors God.
