The topic of family is so challenging. What makes it so challenging is that there is so much diversity.
Each family has its own makeup. Families consist of individuals with a variety of personalities and temperaments. Even with all of this diversity, families are alike in one way: We all want to get it right.
It is interesting to note that there are no examples of a perfect family in the Bible. Adam and Eve had the perfect setting in which to raise a family. If anybody could have raised a perfect family, it should have been Adam and Eve.
But their family was far from perfect. Adam did what so many men have done across the years: He chose a woman (Eve) over God. Big mistake. One of Adam and Eve’s sons committed the first homicide in history. Only two generations into the human family and things already were falling apart.
