"Two are better than one...If one of them should fall, the other one can raise his partner up." Ecclesiastes 4:9, 10. Please consider the following: Teamwork. So you can easily solve the problems may occur in the family. Respect. Successful families discuss matters without resorting to sarcasm, insults and other forms of abusive speech. Family members treat one another as they themselves would like to be treated. Reasonableness. Parents display reasonableness when dealing with their children. Their discipline is not excessive, nor are they hard to please. They grant freedoms to adolescents who demonstrate a sense of responsibility. Forgiveness. Successful couples learn from the past; but they do not keep track of old grievances and then use these to make sweeping assertions, such as "You're always late" or "You never listen." Both husband and wife believe that "it is beauty... to pass over transgression." Proverbs 19:11. Firm foundation. With a firm Scriptural foundation, your family can withstand the storms that threaten it. Determine to apply the Bible in your life.
