Perfect Bible Verses For Family – Scripture Rules to Live By

Fam·i·ly – “a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household.” (google definition)

God has blessed each of us with a family. These are the people that we will learn from, grow and struggle with. Through all the good and bad moments that life throws us, it’s important that faith is the foundation for our family. 

One of the responsibilities as a parent is to raise children in the way of the Lord. 

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” 
Proverbs 22:6

These Bible Verses can be memorized, kept as a reminder on your wall, or one can be chosen for your family to live by. Scripture can be added to holiday cards or given as a reminder, to a family you love.

10 Bible Verses For Family

(We have used the NIV translation for each of the verses.)

1.Mark 12:30

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”

– The foundation of our family begins with loving the Lord with all our heart. –

2.Romans 8:38-39

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”   

– Often through the struggles of life, we forget the Lord’s goodness. It’s important to remind each other that we are unconditionally loved by our God. –

3.Colossians 3:13

“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” 

– Forgiveness can be difficult, especially between siblings! When we can show our children what the forgiveness of Jesus looks like, it can make our family so much stronger. –

4.Colossians 3:9-10

“Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” 

– Honesty is the best policy right?! Practice honesty even when our pride kicks in! It’s important to lead by example with our interactions with friends and family. –

5. Mark 12:31

“The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

– The Lords second command is to love our neighbor as ourself. Which means practicing compassion not only with our family and friends but most importantly with ourself. –

6.Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;”

 – Be the parents who puts their trust in God! This is one of the greatest ways you can show your children what a foundation on Him looks like. –

7. Philippians 4:6

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

– When trials come our way, remember that we must trust in the Lord. Practice a time of prayer versus worrying about the situation. –

8. Colossians 3:23

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,” 

– Whatever you do in life, whether that’s sports, academics, volunteering, or your career, do it with all your heart. Working hard for the Lord is such an important part of our life. –

9. Ephesians 4:32

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” 

 Sometimes we need a reminder to be kind to each other, to our friends, and even those we don’t get along with. –

10. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

“give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

 – Maybe you sit around the dinner table and say one thing you are thankful for or you find the time to write a friend a letter. Practicing a heart of gratitude is one of the best gifts you can give your family. –

11. Ecclesiastes 8:15

“So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun.” 

– Last but not least, enjoy this life that the Lord has given you! Laugh together, enjoy a meal, and savor the little moments. –
