Today many families are under attack in our society because of sinful world’s parties. Many people are obsessed with fun party lifestyle. Those who want to destroy the family will continue to urge mothers to leave the home and become fulfilled in the workplace instead of spending time with their children at the expense of their family. 1st Timothy 5:14-15 says “I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. For some are already turned aside after Satan.
Many people just want to have fun and party at work in the name of business, in the name of get together etc to seek personal fulfillment in career instead of family. They would be rather a corporate slave instead of serving their families. To serve God starts with serving in our families. Many successful man have crossed over the line of God’s limitations in the work place have selfishly ignored or neglected their marriage ,their families, their wife and children instead of spending a quality time with them, buried their emotions for their family and have worked like computerized robots. As a result marriages, relationships have destroyed, families have fallen apart.
Most of the Parties involve things that are immoral for living, fornication, all sorts of worldliness, flirting, where drinking, drug use, temptation, lust, or adultery including the adultery of the mind is common. God says in Romans 13:13 not to participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy.
Today majority of the people in the world are busy in searching for the worldly places to engage themselves in ungodly behavior to have fun and enjoyment or to hang out with their wrong ungodly friends.
As a true believer in Christ our actions should not cause someone else to stumble in their faith or walk with God (2 Corinthians 6:3) and we are to guard ourselves against temptation, remembering that bad company corrupts good character (1 Corinthians 15:33). God wants us to live by a higher standard by being examples of Christ rather than living by the world’s standards of life. Our goal should be to please God not a man. We must live right, by repenting all sins forsaking ungodly lifestyle, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with the lost sinners by, setting a good example to our families, friends in a heathen world. God is concerned with how high a priority we place our families next to him. We all need to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to us ” (Matthew 6:31-33)

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."
