Family Is The Foundation
Families with a Daddy and a Momma who are raising their own children in godly moral training will make a strong foundation for any society. It’s an anchor and gives future generations good psychological health to face the difficult storms that just living life will bring.
Recently, I’ve been finding some good quotes from one of our former presidents, Teddy Roosevelt. Here’s another that goes along with the truth that healthy families are the foundation of our society:
“No piled-up wealth, no splendor of material growth, no brilliance of artistic development, will permanently avail any people unless its home life is healthy, [has] courage, common sense, and decency, unless he works hard and is willing at need to fight hard; and unless the average woman is a good wife, a good mother, able and willing to perform the first and greatest duty of womanhood, able and willing to bear, and to bring up as they should be brought up, healthy children, sound in body, mind, and character, and numerous enough so that the race shall increase and not decrease.”
