Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; Proverbs 27:23

What’s your vision for your family? Through all the challenges He faced, Jesus had a single vision: to do the will of the Father. God’s will is often clear in scripture: men are the spiritual leaders of their families, kids are supposed to obey parents, dads aren’t supposed to wear kids out with constant criticism, and we are to respect authorities because God put them in charge.

But more than a list of do’s and don’ts, doing God’s will means recognizing that you’re a part of His greater story, not the other way around. The best thing you can do for your family is be the man He asks you to be—a husband and father committed to following Him. One of the ways you do that is by becoming an expert on each member of your family—their strengths, weaknesses, love languages, and daily challenges. Through it all, listen before you speak, stay calm, pray tons, and do it all with love.

That will move you out of your comfort zone at times, and you will make mistakes. Worry less about goofing up than developing the overall vision. Jesus knows you—all your ups and downs—and still thinks you were worth dying for. How’s that for a model of the kind of love you should show your family?
