4 Keys to a Healthy Family:

  1. Acceptance — knowing you are loved and needed
  2. Security — knowing you are protected and provided for
  3. Identity — knowing you are significant
  4. Purpose — knowing your reason for living

  1. Acceptance — knowing you are loved and needed
    • Flaws — appearance
    • Faults — habits and personality quirks
    • Failures — things that disappoint or harm
    Luke 6:42 NLT
    “How can you think of saying, ‘Friend, let me help you get rid of that
    speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye?
    Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye, then you will see
    well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.”
    Colossians 3:12 NLT
    Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe
    yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness,
    and patience.
    Ephesians 4:2-3 NLT
    Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making
    allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every
    effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves
    together with peace.
  2. Security — knowing you are protected and provided for
    3 Primary Areas of Security:

  1. Spiritual security
    Matthew 6:33 NKJV
    “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all
    these things shall be added to you.”
  2. Physical security
    1 Corinthians 6:16-20 MSG
    There’s more to sex than mere skin on skin. Sex is as much spiritual
    mystery as physical fact. As written in Scripture, “THE TWO
    BECOME ONE.” Since we want to become spiritually one with the
    Master, we must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment
    and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever — the kind of sex that
    can never “become one.” There is a sense in which sexual sins are
    different from all others. In sexual sin we violate the sacredness of
    our own bodies, these bodies that were made for God-given and
    God-modeled love, for “becoming one” with another. Or didn’t you
    realize that your body is a sacred place, the place of the Holy Spirit?
    Don’t you see that you can’t live however you please, squandering
    what God paid such a high price for? THE PHYSICAL PART OF YOU
    IS NOT SOME PIECE OF PROPERTY BELONGING TO THE
    SPIRITUAL PART OF YOU. God owns the whole works. So let
    people see God in and through your body.
  3. Financial security
    Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
    Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own
    understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which
    path to take.
    Proverbs 3:9-10 NKJV
    Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all
    your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats
    will overflow with new wine.

3. Identity — knowing you are significant


Matthew 19:5 NKJV
“… and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’?”
Romans 12:10 NLT
Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring
each other.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NLT
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other
succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But
someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying
close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm
alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but
two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a
triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

4. Purpose — knowing your reason for living
Ephesians 1:11 MSG
It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for.
Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his
eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living …
