Am I worthy of having my own family?

“But those who won’t care for their relatives, especially those in their own household, have denied the true faith. Such people are worse than unbelievers.” – 1 Timothy 5:8

I can’t believe seeing the number of people who talk extensively about having a family to their own. In fact, there are lots and lots of them. When you stay near one of these people and hear how much they speak about their desire, which is to have kids, and marry, you will think, they are already fully prepared and ready for the task.

It is so sad that in spite of these people’s strong willingness to have their own family, they are not up to the task. Imagine having that family and not be able to cater for them at the end?

Having a family of your own is great and in fact, I am one of those who encourage this, but you need to understand that if you are not 100% prepared for such, then I advise you not to dive into it.

If you long to have your own family, which is get married to the one you love, then start raising children together, and you end up not catering for them, then you are a failure!

God is not ready to see you abandoning your family when they need you most. Look at that verse again, it states that if you don’t care for your relatives, that is your family, and then you have denied the true faith, which is your confession as a Christian who is Christ-like image.
Apart from this, the bible makes us to understand that you are worse off than ordinary believers. Does this makes any sense to you?

Please, I implore you; DO NOT neglect your family. Be ready and up to the task of facing your role in the house and assuming your responsibilities.

Do not be a nonentity. It does not pay. It is a sin unto God when you fail in your duty by
abandoning your role in your house.
I repeat, if you are not capable of raising your own family, then DO NOT dive into it. Wait until you are ready before you do it so that you won’t lose your salvation and be sinning against God.
May God help you, amen.
