#110 Seven Christian Household Rules
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred and ten of this series, Seven Christian Household Rules.
Paul’s household rules are seen as outdated, and some say Paul made these rules up to fit the times, such as the instructions for bondservants. Paul would have had to be wrong twice, because these rules are in Colossians and Ephesians. Paul was fully in the Spirit when he was writing every verse in his letters, and all biblical instructions are for everyone, for all time.
Seven Christian Household Rules:
- Wives, submit to husbands.
- Husbands, love your wife as Christ loved the church.
- Children, obey your parents.
- Fathers, do not provoke your children.
- Workers, work as to the Lord.
- Supervisors treat your workers justly and fairly.
- Everyone, you have a Master in heaven.
Yes, everyone has a master in heaven, and everyone is a servant to all on earth. This does not mean that people in situations of abuse must remain in abuse. All abuse is a sin. Abuse is also a crime and an injustice to God. God does command patience and gentleness, even when someone is not showing courtesy. God encourages us in love therefore, we need to encourage others in love.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Col 3:18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Col 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Col 3:20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Col 3:21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. Col 3:22 Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. Col 3:23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, Col 3:24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. Col 3:25 For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality. Col 4:1 Masters, treat your bondservants justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.
For The Fathers teaches the Bible to all that will listen; men, women, and children with an emphasis on men's ministry.
For the Fathers Ministry is a non-profit ministry that seeks to heal and strengthen families by the power of God's Word. To heal and strengthen a man is to heal and strengthen his whole family. For every man that receives the Gospel, his walk in Christ will reach and be seen by many.Learn More
