The Faith Family use the 5 F’s as a foundation in our plan. Faith, Family, Fitness, Finances and Fun. God gives purpose to every family. There are many examples in the earth and in the bible of family assignments and God give gifts for the purpose of fulfilling our assignment.
Let’s look at some families and their gift. The Winans family- you think singing. We know Mom and Pop Winans could sing like no other and that gift was dominant in their family. The Winans family surely have blessed the body of Christ and this world with great music in at least three generations.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said. “ My father is a preacher, my grandfather and great grandfather is a preacher and my father brother is a preacher. I had no choice but to become a preacher”. Even though Dr. King grew up wanting to be a doctor or a lawyer, he became a preacher and it was the gift that God used to change America.
The parents in each example above raised their children in the Lord and the results speaks.
One of our roles as parents is to nurture and support our children in development of their gifts. Our primary role as parents is to raise our children in the Lord.
