The Family is an Ecologically Balanced Environment

Can you imagine the staggering beauty of the creation that Adam and Eve got to see?  Without pollution, garbage dumps, or even littering?  A family is an environment for the growth of human beings.  The question is, how balanced is the ecology?

The atmosphere of an ecologically balanced family is oneness.  Pure oneness.  Oneness with the Father, Son & Spirit.  Oneness between husband and wife.  Oneness with our children.

The habitat of an ecologically balanced family is a home:  a safe place to go into and venture out of.  A place to be separated from the rushing world outside.

Unfortunately, there are no perfect families, and not only that there never have been (Adam and Eve’s children were born AFTER the fall.).  I heard someone preaching the other day and they said that some families may appear to have it all together–and the danger in that is spiritual pride.  Families who truly have it together know the only road to a healthy ecologically balanced family atmosphere is through a humble dependence upon the Father.

Humble yourselves [feeling very insignificant] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up and make your lives significant]. James 4:10 Ampl.
