Family Harmony (Proverbs 17)

with Ron Deal | June 22, 2020

The message of Proverbs 17 is true, isn't it? You can have a house full of food, but if there's strife in your family, the food doesn't taste very good. And, it's not limited to just food. We fill our houses with game systems and entertainment systems but if there is disharmony none of it satisfies because we are hardwired for love and connection and without that, material things medicate our longings, but they can't satisfy them. So, eat less "food" and invest more of you in family harmony.

Ron: Harmony at home is far more satisfying than a giant feast.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: That’s the message of Proverbs 17 in the Bible. And it’s true, isn’t it? You can have a house full of food, but if there’s strife in your family, the food doesn’t taste very good. And, of course, it’s not limited to just food. We fill our houses with game systems, sound systems, and entertainment systems in every room but if there is disharmony none of it satisfies.

Well, why not? Because we are hardwired for love and connection and without that, material things can medicate our longings, but they can’t satisfy them. So, eat less “food” and invest a little more of you in family harmony. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
