Does Bible teaches us to love our family? Hi i am a new believer, accepted christ last month. As a new believer many people would ask what made you make the decision. I always cannot answer this question properly. The main thing is i know i accepted christ because i became a more loving person since i first went to church. Therefore my relationship with family became better and better. This is what i answer when i had dinner with my christian fellow. Can anyone help me find any verse related to loving your parents? All i found is the opposite, As said in Matthew 10:34-39 34"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn " 'a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law - 36a man's enemies will be the members of his own household.' 37"Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; 38and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
