Oh,...that's easy to answer.

“In The Beginning”,…….God instituted both work and family by commanding the first man to “increase and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it”
and also in Genesis we’re told,“to dress the garden and keep it”.

Today these two fundamental divine decrees demand the bigger portion of a father’s attention, and if he’s not guided by God who ordained these commands,
the two responsibilities clash, tormenting the man with continual tension as he is pulled between these two callings of duty.

A father who places too much emphasis, focus, time and energy into his work, tends to neglect the responsibilities of fatherhood and family.
On the other hand, the man who spends too much time into home life, often neglects his duty and responsibility to work.

God has placed the human father at the heart and center of family and work, calling for an incredible balancing act of uniting and integrating these two worlds in our daily lives.
Witnessing our daily courage and hearing our prayer, God the Father, living in the human father, will provide the grace needed to unite and balance these two responsibilities in our lives.

Realistically, Work is at the service of the human father’s family, giving him the necessary resources to effectively build the domestic church where the presence of God can abide.
The ultimate purpose of work is to labor for Jesus in our family and labor to develop Christ in our children.

Cisco Kid, that is why Eve, woman, was created from the rib bone of Adam. She was created to be a complement or helper to her husband.
The scriptures give the perfect recipe for being a great father and husband to a man's family, as well as maintaining a happy home and environment for all (Ephesians 5:21-33; Colossians 3:12-14; Colossians 3:18-21)...To be wives that have God's approval Proverbs 31: 10-31, is excellent advice for wives be they Christian or not.

Have you ever asked yourself why The Watchtower Society publications never name the authors?
Why is it that their writers remain anonymous and never take accountability?

When you seek those answers it will open up your mind to other questions about the Watchtower Society.

Peace be with you.
