For what is man born? It is for love. One receives parents’ love from the womb until marriageable age. And one meets his partner and falls in love. In the meantime, he comes to experience God’s love by having his own children. Through this course, you learn how to love God, as you love your children, partner and the other family members. And the course is the most basic step for man to go to the Kingdom of Heaven. A family has grandparents, parents, husband and wife, brothers and sisters. All human beings indicate an amplification of the components of a family. A family that can love another family is able to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. It’s a surprising fact. They can inherit all the God-given privileges and powers.
Even in a noble family a long time ago, the most sacrificial and effort-making person was supposed to be the heir of the family, no matter how many candidates there were.
