Four care packages that I can give to my family
1. _______________________________________ MY FAMILY.
“Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Whenever I pray, I make my request for all of you with joy.” Philippians 1:3-4 (NLT)
2. _______________________________________ MY PARENTS.
“Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lord, for this is the right thing to do. ‘Honor your father and mother.’ This is the first of the ten commandments that ends with a promise. If you honor your father and mother, ‘things will go well for you, and you will have a long, full of blessing.’” Ephesians 6:1-3 (NLT)
3. ________________________________________ MY FAMILY.
“Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”Ephesians 4:32 (NLT)
“And forgive us our sins, just as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us. If you forgive those who sin against you, your Heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.” Matthew 6:12, 14-15 (NLT)
4. __________________________________________ TO MY FAMILY.
“Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38 (NIV)
“We love each other, because He loved us first.” 1 John 4:19 (NLT)
