It is a wonder how modern technology is serving mankind in today’s age, however, it is also a fact that it has its own disadvantages in the impact it made in our lives. It is observed that instead of it being a tool, it has become of a gauge of how we run our lives.
In the same way for media, politics, sports and work, the involvement brought about by our surroundings has led for some to be proud.

The rock of civilization is said to have been the family, and this means love and respect of which a family is built on.
Not only will love and respect serve a family during trials, but also by having a strong and shared moral beliefs, of having a sense on what is right and what is wrong, and these will be a guide in fulfilling a family’s mission in life.
Therefore, to keep a family strong, especially in a society where beliefs are fragmented and divided, to have a compass to guide for the members’ moral well-being is the key.
It can be said that a person’s present and future success in life can be traced to a strong moral perspective of his or her family. It is fair to say then that a child with a strong moral beliefs and understanding will grow older with guidance as he or she begins shaping his or her destiny.
Among the many morals that are written in the Bible that can still be applied today are “bad company ruins good morals, no one can serve two masters, and you shall love your neighbor as yourself”.
