LESSON 6: Finding Rest in Family Ties

Family relationships often are complicated and painful, leaving us restless, hurt, and carrying loads of emotional baggage that we, in turn, off-load on others.


Learn how we can find God’s rest in this area of our lives.

Read for This Week’s Study: Genesis 34; Heb. 11:17–22Deut. 4:291 John 3:12; Genesis 39; Eph. 6:1–13.

Memory Text: “You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen” (2 Peter 3:1718, NKJV).
