It may say it in a rather crude and dramatic way, but the message of “Family Comes First” is one that everyone needs to hear, myself included.

I think the genius of this particular film is that the guy who needs to learn the lesson is not an egotistical, money-loving maniac. In fact, he thinks he is putting family first by working hard and earning money, by raising their standard of living. Or by being a role model and taking his responsibilities seriously and not wanting to let his boss down.

As far as I can see, earning money is important – but not the be all and end all (actually, giving money away is more important for my health and happiness). Working for my family is not the same as spending time with them. Working for the church is not the same as spending time with Jesus.

Who am I going to invest in today?
