Family – the most precious gift from the GOD

The most precious gift from the GOD for a human is his family. Our life is a battle field where we fight against internal and external enemies everyday.  When we get tired of everything we come back to family to get strength and get ready for another battle. A family is the place where we find all the joy, happiness, love, caring, strength, encouragement, comfort, unity,  and nourishment under one roof. Manny Feldman said, “A family is a deeply rooted tree with branches of different strengths, all receiving nourishment from an infinite source.” A family is considered as a life support. So, there is no doubt that GOD has given us his best present that is our family.

A family is the sweet fruit of love of our parents, blessed by GOD.. When we are born our parents try their best to protect us from heat, cold, enemies, and all the evil things. They sacrifice their own happiness for us. It is a place from where we get strength and power. When we are little we learn to walk holding the hands of our parents. When we go outside or meet someone new we feel shy and insecure. But at home we feel at ease and comfortable. When get sick we are taken care of by the family. As such, there is nothing valuable in the world than the family.

A family is the root of our identity. The values, ethics, rituals that we learn begin from the family. From the family we learn to differentiate  good from bad. Family teaches us the moral leanings. A family is our first teacher, first educational institute, and first organization. From the family we first learn speech, then words, then sentences. In the family we learn sharing our responsibilities where our parent’s are the manager. They guide us in the correct path of the life. So, having a family is priceless.

A family meets all our basic needs: food, shelter, cloth, education.

A life without a family is miserable. Without a family a person feels alone, there is nobody to give him company. He doesn’t have any responsibility to take care of. His life goes without any direction. A person without  a family is like an uprooted tree.

    Jotsna, I totally agree with you. Family is an excellent gift that God gives to us. Personally my family is the most important thing that I have. I can tell you, I am far away from home and what I miss more is my family!

      Hi Giselle,

      Thanks very much for your comment.

      Specially , people like us who live far away from the family realize the fact more. I know what it means for me. Sometimes I feel suffocated when I miss my family and think that I need to be with my family to take a fresh breath. I don’t know when I will be with them..

      Thanks again

      Hi Natalie,

      Thanks for sharing the idea. Sorry, I haven’t got a chance to listen the song. But I wish I will. Let me search you tube or goggle for the song.

      Thanks again

    This is so true. WE all need to be reminded of this. Thank you. A dear friend recently reminded me that when our lives are done the ONLY thing that matters is family – not career or wealth. That is true.
    This whole blog is a wonderful resource and I will continue to visit.
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and culture.

      Hi Sonja,

      Thank you very much.I appreciate your friendly and encouraging comment. I apologies that I haven’t got much time to read all of my classmates blog as me and my family were sick for a long time. When I got well I was busy with writing my own blog. I hope now I will be able to visit your blog as well as others. I really enjoyed the course with friends like you.

      Take care
