RADIO PROGRAM NO. 314 - What Unites the Family?

Questioner: Many people are concerned about the way parents and children get along, or rather, the way they so often don't get along. Changing patterns of living, attractions outside the home, and the generation gap can bring differences of opinion that severely challenge a family.

Speaker: There is a basis for uniting parents and children, and it goes to the very foundation of existence. It is the basis indicated by Christ Jesus in the two opening and profound words of the Lord's Prayer (Matt. 6:9): "Our Father." This establishes a common acknowledgment that God is the Father not only of the children but of the parents.
