Micah 7:6 (KJB) For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.
Family values, tradition, and loyalty are often found to be weak and broken. Many injured relationships are not able to stand the test of time and circumstances found at work in this world.
God’s Word clearly states that relationships will be torn apart with many being utterly destroyed. The potential for relationship harm is garnered from a wide influence from darkened hearts. Evil and wickedness work to unhinge and devastate relationships based in this world.
However, nothing can harm spiritual based relationships which are eternally secure and sealed forever by the working of the supernatural Spirit of God. This means though a man or woman of God may lose close family and friend relations in this world; he or she will never be found to be without a personal relationship with God.
Relationships including marriages, siblings, with parents, and extended family are exposed and vulnerable in a society which readily accepts flagrant dark discord and division as the standard or the “norm.” where disgrace and dishonor are readily expected and accepted.
A personal relationship with God culminates peace, light, and eternal security; both in this world and for all eternity.
Christ-likeness seems to be a rare occurrence among personal relationships. Discord and dishonor seem to rule in evil hearts and are the standard at work in this world. Only A personal relationship with God ushers in an eternal harmony and refuge.
