The family is a very important institution that was created by God in the Garden of Eden at the very beginning of creation. In Genesis 1:26 the Bible records that on the sixth day God created Adam and Eve, gave them dominion over the entire earth, and provided everything they needed to be sustained as a family. He also gave them instructions to be fruitful and multiply in order to become a loving, wholesome, and complete family (Genesis 1:28). In essence, God created in the family a human circle of love that, at its best, models caring, sharing, nurturing, and perpetual selflessness—a human expression of the relational nature of God—made possible through a loving relationship with Him.
