Today it is in vogue to claim that all family units have the same value and benefit, that you can substitute someone of the opposite sex for a father or mother. Two fathers, two mothers, single parent, a mom and a dad – all claiming equal legitimacy these days. The reality is that having both a father and a mother in the home is what’s best. Fathers have been placed as the head of the home, and as such they yield to our Heavenly Father as the ultimate authority. This enables them to become the type of father that the rest of the family can yield to.
