Make Your Faith Your Foundation

  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:5-6  Get your head out of the clouds and put your feet on the ground.  Set your sights on Jesus and walk with Him by following His directives.  He is our future.  Enjoy the new creation he will create in those who place their trust in Him.  (21)

           Practice your faith and live it.  If your children take a break in their faith journey, lead by example.  Always let them know its importance in your life.  The only constant in your life is God; our earthly family is His gift to sustain us in the here and now.  (22)

            We need to live as God would have us live, not as the World lives.  His word should be our guide in all things, with a Christ-centered family life and parents setting a Godly example for their children to follow.  (24)

            Read and study the bible every day.  It presents the pure Christian faith, which produces a desire for Christ-like living in thoughts, desires, words, and deeds.  Just as the triune God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that we now enjoy peace with Him and a home reserved for us in heaven, Strive to have sincere, self-sacrificing concern for the welfare and needs of others.  (27)

Recipe. According to Encarta, "a list of ingredients and instructions for making something." The thesaurus offers the alternate terms, "formula, guidelines, directions, steps, technique."
