The family was first instituted by God with Adam and Eve, which you would think would be the perfect couple, a match made in heaven, a God ordained marriage, but with all that it had going for it problems arrived in their family as does in ours.
It all happened so quickly Adam falls asleep and wakes up married, probably the fastest marriage courtship in the world. The Bible doesn’t go in to much detail other than Adam couldn’t find a help meet. Remember God made Adam from the earth, but, instead of using more soil to make Eve, God used one of Adam’s ribs. Genesis 2:21; 22 And the rib, which the LordGod had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. The Hebrew word for “made” is banah and is translated “build.” God literally built Eve, with the idea of building a family. She was to be the perfect complement for Adam for we read Adam’s response to Eve, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. We must learn to work together in marriage, showing respect and love to each other. Wives submitting, husbands loving and honoring their wives, which are the building blocks of a strong family unit. Let’s let God build our families; allow Him to be first in everything we do, with a common goal of all of us going to heaven.
