Loving our family

Maintaining a deep love for the members of our family can seem like a pretty tall order sometimes—especially if there is discord and pettiness.

But I see loving our family as a spiritual necessity and not simply a human exercise. The Bible explains: "He that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also" (I John 4:20, 21). These words make clear the relationship of loving our brother and loving our Father-Mother God as one harmonious family. This commandment is inviolable, and we can prove it!
