The family really has everything to do with human rights. It is the only way to guarantee society a long-term vision, while policies that defend LGBTQ + rights and the incentive to abortion work totally against the family and harm society.
Be aware of what you can do in your own home, company, church, and sphere of influence in order to strengthen family bonds. The family is the means by which God chose to bless all people.
I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.Genesis 12:3
Prayer: God, thank you so much for my family. I ask You to give me the grace to cultivate a healthy home so that my children and everyone around us can be blessed, in Christ Jesus. Amen.
