Advantages of Having Family Devotions
Family devotions may at times prove to be challenging regarding the fact that you may need to bring all your family members together. This is because it may not be easy to encourage all the members of your family to come together since some may have their religious preferences. In as much as you would wish to incorporate family devotion to your lifestyle, it is also important to be sensitive to all your family members’ choice of worship. Regarding the fact that family devotions encourage a spirit of togetherness, it is important that you incorporate it in your daily lifestyle.
One of the main benefits of having family devotion is that it encourages peace in the home. Regarding the fact as a family you tend to know each other’s flaws and behaviors, family devotion provides the best platform to re-evaluate one’s life. Through the family devotions, you will be able to sit together and confront our wayward ways by gently pointing them out rather than reprimand and also offer advice and encouragement on how to live a life that is acceptable to both God and man. Therefore, through family devotion, your family will be able to live in harmony since there will be no more reprimands but just pieces of advice and encouragements.
By having daily family devotions, your family will be able to enjoy the benefit of togetherness. This is because the daily worship help in binding the family spiritually. Regarding the fact in today’s society most families hardly come together as a family, and when they do, in instances such as sharing meals, it is considered a great achievement. Therefore, you can imagine what a family devotion can achieve regarding bringing a family together.
Family devotions also encourage the family members to have common knowledge regarding the scriptures. This is because the daily scriptures they read together as a family enables them to converse easily. This means that the children will grow up with confidence and not afraid to take part in corporate worship hence binding them more to God.
Other than bringing the family together, family devotion also reinforces the headship of a family. This means that it goes in line with what is written in the scriptures with regards to the father or a single mother being the head of the family. By being the head of a family, your family members will always look up to you for spiritual guidance through the daily family devotions. For that reason, I would recommend that you incorporate family devotions in your lifestyle to be able to enjoy the benefits mentioned above.
