God’s Blessings Are Essential
It is useless or vain to be self-reliant
For God will not bless the efforts.
The house, the city, or the family
Without God will be in “Feustration.”
This is the Motto of the city of
Edinburg, Scotland, and should be
Applied to lives lived without
Salvation through Jesus Christ.
Benjamin Franklin when speaking to the
Convention for Forming a Constitution
For the United States quoted, “Except
The Lord build the house, they labor in vain.”
God must build the house and the family
God gave the first woman to the first man
In Eden and told them, “Be fruitful and
Increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.”
The growth of the family is God’s work.
Children are gifts from God and need to
Be treated as God’s precious gifts
Intended to be a spiritual family.
The city is not Jerusalem, but the New
Jerusalem. The family is not a mere family,
But the whole spiritual family of those
Who belong to Jesus Christ.
