The statistics are staggering: 50% of marriages end in divorce (inside and outside the church); 75% of church going teenagers will leave the church as soon as they graduate high school. The high rate of teen pregnancies taking place inside and outside the church. Each of these are indicators that demonstrate that home health is not good, even among believers.
If these statistics are ever going to change, we must recognize our first priority must be to become missionaries in our home. If we reach the world with the gospel but fail to reach our own children, have we truly been obedient to the calling of Christ? Marriage, Parenting, and home management all make up our home mission field. Are you doing what you must to equip yourself to become a Godly spouse, parent, and friend? As a missionary, we must continually take steps that will enable us to rekindle our relationship with our spouse so that together we can begin to lead our children in the way of the Lord.
