Building Healthy Families

Posted February 20, 2024

Building Healthy Families:  Building Healthy Families: Remember the old Sunday School song that starts, “Oh be careful little eyes what you see…”? As simple as these lyrics may be, they hold a profound truth for us. Many of the things our little eyes see today aren’t good for us and aren’t Godpleasing. Our hearts and minds are imprinted with images and messages that negatively influence how we think and feel about ourselves and others. Be careful to avoid experiences, relationships, web sites, TV shows and song lyrics that don’t reflect God’s good will for you, His beloved child. His designs and plans for you are oh so much better! “Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways.” Psalm 119:37 Lutheran Family Service
