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.
Today we will talk a bit about the First Family: Adam and Eve. God created them….they had no bad influences like we may have, yet they messed things up big-time. Eve ate the apple that was forbidden and Adam joined in and then LIED to GOD about it and blamed his wife! One of their sons murdered the other one to cover up his selfishness and disobedience to God, then went out on the lam to avoid his punishment. They were NOT perfect.
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.
