This lesson, “laying foundation for family is an eye-opener for all those who want a godly family in the present generation. There are some worldly postulations and philosophy that have been proffered concerning marriage but have not yielded positive result. Children of God should bear it in mind that nothing can compare favourably to the standard of God. It is, therefore, advisable for children of God to stick to what God has stipulated for His children.
GOD’S PATTERN FOR THE FAMILY

Memory Verse: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Gen. 2:24)
Marriage is indeed honorable for all. The problems we face in the family relationships are due to man forsaking the plans of God for the family. When we submit ourselves to following God’s plan, the family life becomes a source of joy and support for every member of the family.
