Bible Verses and Scripture for A Broken Family
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. – Psalm 34:18
The verse speaks of the Lord being near to those who are brokenhearted and saving those who are crushed in spirit. In other words, God is present with us in our time of need and will help us to heal.
This can be a particularly powerful message for those who have been through a divorce or separation. No matter how broken our families may be, we can take solace in the fact that God is always with us, ready to help us pick up the pieces.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. – Ephesians 4:32
Restoring a broken family begins with forgiveness and understanding. This Bible verse from Ephesians is often quoted in times of conflict or when families are going through difficult times.
For a broken family, this verse can serve as a reminder that there is always hope for reconciliation and healing. No matter how difficult things may seem, we must never give up on one another. Instead, we should show kindness and tenderness, knowing that God will forgive us just as we forgive others. By extending this same grace to our family members, we can begin to mend what has been broken and create a stronger, more loving bond with one another.
