Whether it is raising children or finding full trust and unconditional love, family is the place to find it the most. Family is a blessed unite that is God ordained. Family gives every person stability in life and a warm place to always go back to. It provides focus and a reason to put all efforts into our lives. A family laughs together, cries together, celebrates together, mourns together, sacrifice for each other, and provides a social aspect to life that we need and can always depend on. And family is never too far away no matter the distance! Unfortunately, we have an enemy who knows how important family is for all human operations and life and tries very hard to fight against our families. May our family become our number one priority over all other things. Money, education, fame, positions etc, can’t buy a happy family. A happy family is a result of lots of time spent together, love and care for one another. All the things available to us from our Father for free make a happy family. May we check our priorities because with the love and support of a family, we can do much better in life than alone no matter how much wealth or fame, poverty or pain life brings. Train your children how to treat family because they will need it. Fight for you family if you have to. Celebrate family. Family is extremely important. That is why God himself ordained it to be.
