Family Values – You Before Me


There is a GAP between what’s REAL and what’s IDEAL.

What bridges the GAP is GRACE.

Ephesians 5:21-25 (NLT)
And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. 22 For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. 24 As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything. 25 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her.

MUTUAL SUBMISSION = I’m going to leverage my assets, my time, and my power for your benefit.

What Can I Do to Help?  

All that I am for all that you need me to be.


Ephesians 5:21(NLT)
And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Romans 5:6-8 (NIV)
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

I will do for you what Jesus has done for me.

John 13:34-35 (NLT)
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”


Ecclesiastes 2:9-11 (NLT)
So I became greater than all who had lived in Jerusalem before me, and my wisdom never failed me. 10 Anything I wanted, I would take. I denied myself no pleasure. I even found great pleasure in hard work, a reward for all my labors. 11 But as I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless—like chasing the wind. There was nothing really worthwhile anywhere.

The only LEGACY that LIVES on is one invested in PEOPLE.

Our children won’t remember what we say, but they will remember WHO we are and WHAT we do.

Actions don’t merely speak louder than words, they will echo into the next generation.

What will echo from your life into the next generation?
