Proverbs 1: 8-9
Even though the Church that has CHRIST as her Head is designed to determine whatever is going on in the very hearts of nations, GOD has made the attributes and similitude of both Church and nation to be embedded in a singular entity or unit called Family. Just like the cells in the body are the units of important systems like the heart and the brain, so is the family the unit system responsible for mirroring in a miniature manner how the Church and the nations GOD rules and leads to function.
The first chapter of the Book of Proverbs mentions the responsibilities of each member of the family almost in passing but the picture it paints about the family in coherence with national operation could not have been clearer than it is. Each member of the unit has been burdened gracefully with the responsibilities that the success of the unit hinges on without the luxury of overlooking one for the other.
