Re: Verse reading – Jeremiah 29:1-14 (day five)
It’s worth noting that God’s hope-filled Word of encouragement and challenge to His people in the midst of exile in Jeremiah 29 has great regard for the family.  “5Build houses and live in them; and plant gardens and eat their produce. 6Take wives and become the fathers of sons and daughters, and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; and multiply there and do not decrease.”  He points to family life and the hope and mission that can be in operation in each home.  Seems to reverberate the command given in Deuteronomy 6.  So… Fathers, mothers, sons and daughters- is there hope (The love, goodness, strength, and power of The Living God) being taught, talked, and celebrated in your home?  It is the task of each family to lead out in worship and discipleship.  It is the task of the church to partner with moms, dads, kids, and grandparents to equip and encourage.
