Scripture Reading:  Leviticus 6:12-13.

Memory verse for the week:    Lev. 6:13

‘And the fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it; it shall not be put out. And the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order on it; and he shall burn on it the fat of the peace offerings.’ (NKJV)

A family is the smallest unit of every society. A good family will produce good citizens. The social and cultural menace of our time is as a result of a broken family system. As the saying goes, “A family that prays together stays together”. This is an all-time truth. The political and socio-economic factors of our time are fast rubbing off negatively on the family system.

I quite agree that some parents and students live far away from their place of work and school respectively. Yet, this is not a good reason to stop them from raising a family altar every day and night. The family altar is a place of sacrifice unto God. It is a time for quality praise, prayer, worship, Bible study and any other thing as the Spirit of God will be leading members of one’s family to do. Jesus said, if two of you shall agree concerning a thing on earth, your heavenly father shall give it unto you.Mat.18:19-20.

Don’t you know? One will chase a thousand and two will put ten thousand to flight. Deuteronomy 32:30.  Parents, Guardians and students should create time doing the right things. Some teenagers know little or nothing about the Bible due to ineffective Bible study time at the family altar. But on the contrary, such teen can sing the latest of all unedifying songs the world has got to offer.

Parents should know that their teenagers are a reflection of their spiritual and academic investment. I was challenged when a teenager recited the entire book of James in the Bible. Another recited the entire 176 verses of the longest book of the Bible, Psalm 119. All these are true expressions of a good family altar.

Teenagers, I encourage you to read today’s devotional with your parents. Together we shall make our nation great.



  1. Fresh fire of God, come upon my family altar, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Satanic distraction targeted at my family altar, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
