Has your family put the “fun” in dysfunction? Do you feel like it may not measure up to God’s plan for the family? In honor of this past week being Father’s Day, I’d like to share a few families that did not fit the bill for fully healthy, and yet God used them. He can use our families too! All week we will talk about the families that just didn’t cut it...just like us.
All of the families we’ve looked at this week were found in the book of Genesis. Today, let’s look at Jesus’ family. They left him behind and did not notice for a FULL DAY that he was not with their travel group. I feel better knowing that even our Savior’s family was not perfect, don’t you?
I’m sharing this because sometimes we are really hard on ourselves and our families. We think we should have it more together than we do...and maybe we should, but we are not alone. God loves us anyway and as long as we are moving toward Him and trying to honor Him, we are in a good spot.
