We posed the question last week:  In these troubled times how can we maintain strong families?   We dug deeply into The Urantia Book’s teachings on the family and civilization and spoke on the family’s significance and what constitutes a “good” family creating worthy adult children and world citizens.

This week we address Michael of Nebadon’s inspiration of tens of thousands of trillions of human beings throughout his realm by his inspiring portrayal of fatherhood and brotherhood in the life he lived as Joshua ben Joseph (Jesus); eldest brother and acting father of those eight brothers and sisters after his human father Joseph’s untimely death.

Did Jesus regard the family as important?  Consider this statement to John Mark, the originator of the first New Testament gospel, regarding his and his friend’s personal family life:

177:2.2   “I know you will prove loyal to the gospel of the kingdom because I can depend upon your present faith and love when these qualities are grounded upon such an early training as has been your portion at home. You are the product of a home where the parents bear each other a sincere affection, and therefore you have not been overloved so as injuriously to exalt your concept of self-importance. Neither has your personality suffered distortion in consequence of your parents’ loveless maneuvering for your confidence and loyalty, the one against the other."

Just that one little quote is rich with implications for better family and interpersonal management.
