From the beginning, God set up the family unit as the foundational, societal building block. Charles Colson captured this principle so eloquently, "The family is the most basic unit of government. As the first community to which a person is attached and first authority under which a person learns to live, the family establishes society's most basic values." In the original home, the Garden of Eden sin made its initial entrance into the world. Sadly, the decisions made in this first home planted the seeds of disobedience in succeeding generations. Despite our original parents' failure, God set in motion His plan of redemption. And He chose another family to fulfill His mission - Abraham's family - but they didn't cherish their election; instead they continually chose other gods.
