American heritage and legacy is based on the biblical view of traditional marriage and family as the backbone of a healthy order and nation. The plan of God, nature and common sense is a man and a woman producing children within the institution of marriage. Preserving the traditional family is vital to the future of any great nation. (Genesis 2:23, 24)
We were designed for relationships. After the magnificent making of man, God looked and saw there was something that was missing. I can hear the heavenly conversation now, “It is not good for the man to be alone.”, Genesis 2:18. So He made Eve and established the family as he charged them to get busy and multiply, to bless each other and the land in which they lived.
“A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
Marriage begins with two, what is the third piece? It is relationship with the One who made us. As a man loves his wife and leads his family in Godly living, God’s blessings flow. The family is the first institution established by God. How precious are those strands which He has placed in our lives to bring us encouragement, hope and health. He calls us to work together as a family that honors HIM.
