Family Unity

Every one of us belong to a family - the basic but the most important unit of the society. Each one has the responsibility and contributions to make to the family. Every person in the family are different, but we can have a successful and happy family if we all do our share.

Unity
of Parents in the family begins with a loving parental relationship that sets an example for the family and extends in a personal way to each child. It will not always free parents from problems and challenges with their children, but it does enable families to cohesively focus on solutions. Both parents see family life as their most important work. In the little kingdom of a family, each spouse freely gives something the other who does not have and without which neither can be complete and return to God’s presence.

Family unity is maintained by sensitive and understanding communication between youth and parents. With this realization, self-mastery and obedience to rules will develop strengths and remove weaknesses from individuals in the family and will strengthen family unity. Be the kind of a family member who is willing to take time to be available. When a family member makes a decision which may be inadequate or improper, do we have the ability and patience to convey the attitude that we don’t agree with his decision but he has the right of choice and is still a loved member of the family? These and many other ills of our society today have their source in the breakdown of the family.Family unity and integrity are necessary to supply this need. A child needs parents who are happy in their relationship to each other, who are working happily toward the fulfillment of ideal family living, who love their children with a sincere and unselfish love, and who are committed to the family’s success. But the activities offered by the world outside the home are not always acceptable; many do not build family unity and a closeness to our Heavenly Father.Family unity, solidarity, and harmony should be preserved. Love, support, and family unity did not come automatically for most of these families but resulted from planning and effort. Parent and child must be willing to put family responsibilities first in order to achieve family's success and happiness.

Sometimes there is little time to simply enjoy being a family anymore because parents are busy. A family should spend quality time together no matter what. It helps to build family strength and unity.

Raising a child is truly a great responsibility. And it is true we are terribly lonesome today without the friendship within a loving family. Thank you for your nice post.

FEEL FREE

A lovely week I wish you. And
your day and week as in God’s hand.
Feel fresh and righteous, free from sin.
Both faith and hope from that begin.

In the fast pace of today’s society families like those of my childhood have all but vanished. With both parents working to make a go of things and some homes with only one parent to begin with; it’s no wonder why our communities are plagued with so many problems. As a child, the family is the very first community that we enter. It forms the basis of our sense of relationship and prepares us for integration into the larger community of society. We may not have had much in the way of material things, but what we did have was of much more value. We had the love of God as well as the love of each other. I pray that these latter generations grasp an understanding of just how important this really is. This is a very good message, with relevance to this present time.

Blessings,
Matt.
