The Case for Family Worship
In so many Christian families, the common missing elements today are, parents catechizing their children and the absence of family worship as a normal part of the daily routine. Puritan George Hamond shows the biblical pattern for family worship with examples from the Old Testament–Abraham, Job, and Joshua–and then that of Christ and Cornelius from the New Testament. This is an important book for those who want to establish the centrality of worship in their homes.
Family worship involving the instruction of children in the faith is the duty laid upon all parents by the Scriptures (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). Unfortunately, it is a duty often neglected today.
As we take the time to catechize our families and worship with them in addition to the services on the Lord’s Day, they will better understand how worship is to be practiced in all of life.
