Family, the basic unit of the community, the society, the nation and the world was ordained by God in Eden with the union of Adam and Eve. God designed the family to serve as the primary provision on the human level for the intimate relationship that we all need. Family serves as the meeting point for an individual’s need for belonging, for love, for intimacy, and for social contact. Most importantly, the family can be a powerful agency for the discipling of its members for Christ.
