They were all His idea and where any of them are lacking a healthy existence – a society suffers. What I have come up with is that within each unit there lies:
(1) A purpose of enrichment/provision
(Family – for the individual, Church – for the spirit of all, Government – for the justice/order/peace of society as a whole)
(2) An authority structure to be followed/respected
(3) An integral power and responsibility to shape/steer human life and well being.
Am I off base? Or do you have any research of your own that can help me build and solidify these thoughts?
How is our society faring with these building blocks?
The Family – is the family unit providing healthy home environments for individuals to grow and develop in every way?
The Church – is the Church healthy and fulfilling its purpose of introducing all people to the inner renewal only available through Jesus and helping them to grow and develop in this?
Government – is our Government healthy and using the best means possible to provide a just, orderly, peaceful environment for its citizens?
Let me know your thoughts on this as well.
