God expects families to have mutually satisfying relationships (Mal. 4:6). He desires that husbands and wives experience unity (Matt. 19:5, 6); that parents "do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord" (Eph. 6:4). 

The guiding principles of the Bible direct that Christians nurture the spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs of the individuals, couples and families who constitute the fabric of fellowship in the church. When the church ministers to the needs of the families as Christ did, they are restored to wholeness. Families who feel complete, and have harmonious relationships, are more likely to be dedicated to God's goals (Col. 2:10).

The family is probably the best illustration God has of what He is like. A family that is spritually healthy will manifest characteristics of humility, patience, hope and loving acceptance. Healthy family functioning is a primary goal.
