Ron: What if you couldn’t protect your family?

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

Ron: I don’t know about you, but before I go to bed every night I make sure the windows and doors are locked, the alarm is on, and the house secure. But what if there were no windows to shut? No doors to lock? And anyone could come in at any time?

Proverbs 25 says living without self-control is like a city with no walls. Well, in the same way a parent who puts the family in debt, can’t control their tongue or set boundaries for their kids, a parent without self-control leaves their family vulnerable to harm. Look, parents, temptation will come. So ask God today to give you wisdom to stand and protect your home. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
