From the beginning of time the basic unit has been the family. It is the most important unit in our lives. Not only does that unit provide for our physical needs but our spiritual as well. Every other unit in the world is based off the family unit. It is the building block of life itself. When that unit is, disturbed or broken, the rest of the entire unit is broken. God created the family unit from the beginning. When He said that a man shall leave his family and shall be joined to his wife and they shall become one flesh. Then He said what God has joined together let no man put asunder. Divorce wasn’t God’s plan. It was man’s. Children are supposed to be the result of marriage. Because children are a part of the heritage of God. And abortion is the result of man’s attempt to subvert God’s plan. I pity the people who have to stand before God and answer for abortion. Not only are children a heritage from God, they are sent to teach us about life itself. They are here to teach how to act toward man and God. And without them we can never be whole. The holidays give us an opportunity to strengthen our family ties. We need to take advantage of this opportunity. Because once it passes, it won’t come again. Take time and give the gift that binds the world together including our family. It is the love for one another and the love of God.
