LESSON INTRODUCTION

 Simply put, a cornerstone is that capstone which gives firmness to a building or house. Figuratively, that which is prominent, fundamental, noteworthy or central. On this note, as a Christian, Jesus Christ should be our Chief cornerstone in our families and relationships. Furthermore, the Holy Spirit speaks expressly in Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
