||A Smart Home...with In-Laws?
Every wedding creates a blended family. Marriage not only joins a man and a woman, it blends the extended family of mothers-in-law, fathers-in-law, sisters-in-law, and brothers-in-law. The odds for dysfunction run pretty high. Today we consider the roles of God, parents, in-laws, and married children doing life together. How can in-laws be prevented from becoming outlaws? Four principles apply:
- Parents Must Release Their Children (28:1-5)
- God Can Rule Their Children (28:10-15)
- In-Laws Should Reinforce Their Children (29:18-28)
- Children Should Respect Their Parents (31:2-7)
