S: what a Thomas is Made Of!
BC: Family: Our True Foundation As the foundation of a building or a house is the most important element - so is the family the foundation of a community, a city, even a society. God Himself highly prizes and support the concept of covenant commitment to family because it is a picture of His love and faithfulness to us. In the beginning as God created He said it was good. However, after He made "the family" and looked upon His creation that He had made - it was very good! Family is the super glue that holds together and strengthens people and society. There is no more powerful picture of this than that painted by the preacher of Ecclesiastes: Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart (4:9-12) Therefore, there is a practical power and reason for family. Families help each other in good times and bad. Families help each other warm from the coldness of the weather and the coldness of life. Families stand together to drive off anything that dares to weaken the strength of the family. And, when the family is hurting, strained, weakened and seems unable to hold out - God Himself is the "third strand" that keeps the family going and growing from generation to generation. | Dr. R.
