[ GROW ]

Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers do not embitter your children, or they will be come discouraged.

Colossians 3:18-21

God invented the family when he created woman and man.  He has a plan for every family that involves truth, love, and service....a plan that reflects the heart of Christ for the home where all family members submit to each other out of a self-giving love.  The best way that we can bless our children and, by definition, our world, is by following that plan, living out the character of God every day.
