God's love is the spiritual force that makes a family enjoy life together. Being a member of a family that loves God and one another is the most wonderful blessing. If strife exists in a Christian home between children and their parents, what should a family do?

First of all, every parent needs to make the quality decision, I'm going to walk in love with my children. I won't be overbearing, nor irritate or provoke my children to anger (Eph. 6:4 AMP).

Each child also needs to make a quality decision. They should receive God's Word about honoring their parents and settle it in their heart: From now on, I'm going to obey and honor my parents.

The love of God is the one force that will overcome every strife-filled situation, every age barrier and every generation gap. God's love is what helps a family to work together as a strong unit.

Our family is a strong unit knit together by love. Our children love us; we love them; and they love one another. We're not in strife with one another. We support each other, pray for each other and help each other.

That's the way it should be in every family - the love of God continually manifested in our midst. When acted upon, love will overcome all failures and resistance.

Learning to walk in love has to start somewhere. Parents ought to forbear their children, rearing them tenderly in the admonition of the Lord - always in the love of God. Children ought to forbear their parents, obeying them and showing them honor. And neither parents nor children should wait for the other side to start doing their part first!

Don't be placed in the class of people who curse their fathers and do not bless their mothers (Prov. 30:11, AMP). Be counted with those who obey God's command to honor their mother and father. Then you can boldly claim God's promise: "Thank You, Father, that all will go well with me as I live long on this earth!"
