In our society today we are all accustomed to filling out some sort of job description forms and returning these to the immediate supervisor. If you are the leader of a company that requires this procedure, you see the value in an employee who understands the job that they are required to do. With this said, many of you would be in an absolute fit if you were asked to fill out a job description for the home. The proper view for knowing and understanding your job in the field is essential for the efficiency of the company. Why would it not be just as valuable to know the duties and responsibilities of each individual within the family?
Could you imagine the order that could be attained in the home if each family member knew exactly what was expected of them. First, you couldn’t blame someone else for a job that was not completed. It is sad to see that everyone wants efficiency in business and they live in chaos at home. We must realize that each member has a role in the home that if lived according to God would create a happier family life. Our society is constantly attacking the family. I was reading a statistic the other day and it stated that if we continue on the path we are headed, by 2040 marriage will no longer exist. It is so sad that we have gone this far from something so beautiful. What many do not realize is that when the family is weak the church and society are weak. We must stand up for traditional family values.
The Holy Family of Joseph, Mary and Jesus can be a good role model. The setup was this: Joseph was head, Mary was heart and Jesus was the obedient son. When the angel would appear with instructions, he always would give the instructions to Joseph. This is the setup of the family according to God.
We must now go out and make a difference in a world that is fading fast and straying from God. It has to start in the home. The family, if lived according to God can help make the world a greater place, full of love for one another.
