Day 5 - YXist 28DC

28DYC Day 05

Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Genesis 12:1-3

Welcome to Day 5 of the challenge.

Today on Day 5 we're gonna talk about your "why" matters to your family, and I'm gonna look at Genesis 12 and I'm gonna read verses 1 through 3.

It reads:

"Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show you: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."

"Why" matters to your family because everything you do affects your family.

It affects your wife, your children. Every decision you make affects your family.

Abram, once he decided to follow God and do what God told him, it affected not only him but it affected his wife.

How?

Because they were blessed with a son.

Why?

Because they did what God told them to do.

They also became one of the most famous families in the Bible because they decided to follow God, and he understood that not only‑‑his decisions did not only affect him but it affected his family as well.
