PRINCIPLES SURVIVE AND THRIVE

# 3 - IT DOESN’T TAKE PERFECTION TO

MAKE A GREAT FAMILY, BUT IT DOES TAKE

WORK

INTRO: LET THE FAMILY WARRIORS RISE UP!

TEXT: 2 Samuel 23, Verse 8 (probably says “David’s Mighty Men” (tell about David):

8 These are the names of David’s mightiest

warriors. The first was Jashobeam the

Hacmonite, who was leader of the Three—the

three mightiest warriors among David’s men. He

once used his spear to kill 800 enemy warriors in

a single battle.

9 Next in rank among the Three was Eleazar son

of Dodai, a descendant of Ahoah. Once Eleazar

and David stood together against the Philistines

when the entire Israelite army had fled. 10 He

killed Philistines until his hand was too tired to lift

his sword, and the Lord gave him a great victory

that day. The rest of the army did not return until

it was time to collect the plunder!

11 Next in rank was Shammah son of Agee from

Harar. One time the Philistines gathered at Lehi

and attacked the Israelites in a field full of lentils.

The Israelite army fled, 12 but Shammah held

his ground in the middle of the field and beat

back the Philistines. So the Lord brought about a

great victory.

What does a Family Warrior Look Like?

# 2 – Prays daily for his family

# 3 – Prays Daily WITH His Family

# 4 – Is Passionate About Serving Jesus

# 1 – Usually Male (but can be female if the

home lacks a male)



# 5 – Sets an Example He Wants His Children to

Follow

Okay Pastor Tommy, that’s what a Family

Warrior LOOKS like, but how do I become one?

FIRST, UNDERSTAND THIS ABSOLUTE,

BEDROCK, FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLE:

• OUR WIVES AND OUR CHILDREN FIND IT

MUCH EASIER TO CONNECT TO A MAN

WITH CHARACTER!

• YOU GAIN THAT CHARACTER BY BEING STRONG IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

• IN FACT, YOUR SPIRITUAL INFLUENCE WILL BE DIMINISHED, IN FACT MUTED, IF YOU DON’T HAVE YOUR OWN WALK WITH GOD

So Pastor Tommy, how can I get strong in my

relationship with God?

• You must take ownership of your own spiritual journey!

Why is owning my own personal spiritual life

such a big deal?
