The family concept is right man and right woman functioning
in marriage and training children. The authority in the family is
invested in the parents. When a maximum number of children
reject the authority of their parents, then a situation develops such
as we have in our country today. We have youngsters on dope --a
rejection of authority; rioting in the schools and colleges--a rejection
of authority; criminals on the increase. It starts in the family.
That is why we have the command, "Honor thy father and thy mother
that thy days may be long upon the land...(Ex.20:12)."
This is not only for the individual, but is also a national scale, for
stability in a nation.
"This is the promise that He hath promised us, even eternal life."
1 John 2:25
Dear father, teach me to give priority to the eternal values which
make life worth living.
In Christ name I pray
