Fear of God Devotional: Home Is the Ideal Place for Repentance

Where is the best place to learn repentance?

Jason Dohm explains in this video that the home is the ideal place to learn repentance. It is where we are most prone to sin against others because we’re most familiar with each other with members of our family. Familiarity can breed contempt.

In Christian families, repentance should be a part of the fabric of everyday life. We are living together in close quarters and are prone to sin against each other. A Christian home should be a place where repentance is on display regularly. Fathers should be examples of repentance to their families. 

Ephesians 6:4 (NKJV) – “And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.”
