At the end of the day, we all want a prosperous future. A prosperous future requires us to be productive and enterprising. Strong economies are driven by productivity. However, you cannot have a strong economy without having strong institutions that reinforce certain values. Values that are in alignment with the future we want. This is why the devil and his agents attack institutions, especially sacred ones like family and church. The institution of marriage and family is under attack, and if the attack succeeds, the consequences will be severe. You must never lose sight of the fact that families provide the platform for individuals to be productive at a scale that matters.
The major difference between the human society and the animal kingdom is that human beings are able to self-organize into distinct families. The family is the smallest and most fundamental unit of the society. Several research and studies have shown that family gives you motivation to aspire towards becoming the best version of yourself. A 2015 report titled “Strong Families, Prosperous States” presented the fact that, “Higher levels of marriage, and especially higher levels of married-parent families, are strongly associated with more economic growth, more economic mobility, less child poverty, and higher median family income at the state level in the United States.”
The productivity of a nation depends upon the quality of its human capital. Human capital is shaped by family values. Strong families are the bedrock of prosperous nations. You cannot steer your world towards a better future without strong family values. There is no society without the family. The bible reinforces the value of families, and there is no wisdom in abandonment of this “ancient landmark”. You must resist any wave from hell that seeks to redefine and weaken marriage and family. Men and women alike must be ready to pay the price requirements of a strong and purpose driven home. In the real sense of it, your family is your first watch.
