Malachi 4:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, And the heart of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
The last thing mentioned in the Old Testament, just before the word curse is a family ministry! Elijah would come. He would preach. He would remind them of the Word of God, the ministry of Moses. They would repent or else. If they repented then they wouldn’t fall under the curse. If not they would be cursed.
Good ministry should help strengthen our families. As men turn their hearts towards God they will turn them towards their family. As children turn towards God they will turn toward their parents. God will make all the difference.
