In the Beginning: The Importance of Absolute Values for a Successful Family

In the Beginning God. These are the first words of the Bible. Many people began the Bible reading earlier this year and have already stopped. The same with the gym, that diet, etc. A new habit, better management, the decision to do something different. All this goes with the beginning of a new year.

But some plans and goals are already beyond your control. And this is largely due to the lack of clarity about the values ​​established for your life and family.

The egg or the chicken?

principle chicken or egg

What came first: the egg or the chicken? A child is confused to hear this question. An adult usually already has a response formed from his worldview.

This question can be considered extremely simple. Just as it can be quite complex and controversial. It depends on the point of view. Now, the purpose of this post goes beyond this question, inviting you to reflect on the importance of absolute values ​​for a successful family.

Thinking through Principles

thinking by principle

Thinking about principles makes life much simpler. From the moment you have the right established starting point, everything else becomes much easier.

I see people confused in their agendas to the point of saying they have no time. In fact, a living person always has time. Someone does not have time after his death. If he died, he does not have time anymore. But if there are no priorities, it looks like there is no time. In fact, a person without established priorities, without values ​​in order, does not live well. Opportunities are lost. Relationships that can make all the difference in the world go blank.

The first loyalty test

principle no princípio Deus

The Bible begins with this first sentence:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

Genesis 1: 1

There is a beginning, a principle, an established general start. So it is possible that other events have happened. Our story unfolds. Things happened and happen every day. From a starting point.

Dr. Dennis Lindsay, author and president of the Christ for the Nations Institute (CFNI)  says that the first test of fidelity in the universe is the proof of this phrase “In the beginning God.” Stop for a moment and consider. Science can not prove this declaration. It’s a matter of trust, commitment, faith. Without it, life has no meaning.

On the other hand, faith is the most assertive way of life we ​​can choose. You can read the Bible and interact with the author by talking to God. You will not be without practical, clear and real answers. Never! The Spirit of God guides us as we read the Bible. He answers us whenever we ask him a question. Try it and you will understand what I am saying. God will always confirm His Word.

Just as the religions of the East (such as Islam and Buddhism) are based on some unreasonable revelation without argument, the religions of the West (as humanism and also atheism) are based on reason without revelation. Yet according to Dr. Lindsay, only the Bible offers us the balance between revelation and reason. Therefore, the

is the only rule of faith and infallible practice. It provides us with the correct starting point.

Principle and Principles

Wandering between the narrative of the very principle according to the Bible and the principles for a successful life and family, let’s see:

. The Origin of Man
. The Origin of Women
. The Constitution of the Family

We then divide this subject into 3 more posts to come next. In this way, we can analyze each of these topics in more details. We will see how wonderful God’s purpose for his creation is. And even more so within the context of the family.

Remember that a successful family has reached this point because of their well-founded values. This will never be possible starting from another beginning but the truth of the Word of God. Prove and see that God is good and has a beautiful plan for your family.
