Foundations of the Family: Restoring the Foundations

Malachi 2:14-17

Over the next few Sunday evenings, I want to bring a series of messages on 'Restoring the Foundations'. The family is under attack from the enemy in every area. From this study I hope we will develop a biblical view of family pressure and problems. We must understand that the root of our problems lie in disobedience to God's principles. We must understand God's plan for the family and only consider biblical solutions to our problems.

Psalms 11:3, "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"

The two-fold purpose of this series is presented for us in Is. 58:12. " And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in."

I. Reason For The Rebuke (Verse 14)

II. Rejection Of The Plan (Verse 15)

III. Running From The Problem (Verse 16)

IV. Repentance Required (Verse 17)

What about the foundations of our families. Are there some things that we must do to repair or rebuild? Will we be honest with God and with ourselves in this matter?
