II Timothy 3:1 – 5 (NKJV) But know this, thatin the last daysperilous times will come:2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,3 UNLOVING,UNFORGIVING, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure ratherthan lovers of god,5 having a form of godliness butdenying its power…
Astorgos (Greek) – is a combination of the Greek negative prefix “a” (not, or without) plus the root storge, meaning family love. So, it literally means a LACK OF FAMILY LOVE in the last days. Storge is one of four Greek words that are translated as LOVE:

Agape – Unconditional love that brings forth caring regardless of the circumstances. It is a sacrificial love that is more than a feeling – but an act of the will. Jesus was agape personified.

Eros – passionate love, with sensual desire and longing. Romantic, pure emotion without the balance of logic – “Love at first sight” that often leads to a matured eros of “being in love.”

Phileo – the love between friends who share a common interest or activity; it involves affectionate regard, with give and take. The love of best friends who seek to make one another happy.
(i.e. Philadelphia – the city of brotherly love).

Storge – fondness through familiarity, especially between family members. This affection is present in family-like relationships without coercion, and it pays the least attention to the characteristics deemed “worthy of love.” Because this affection has the appearance of being “built-in or ready-made,” people come to expect it irrespective of their behavior or the consequences of their behavior.
Matthew 24:12 (NCV) – There will be more and more evil in the world, so most people will stop showing their love for each other.

I Timothy 5:8 (NLT) – But those who won't care for their own relatives, especially those living in the same household, have denied what we believe. Such people are worse than unbelievers.

Doing family can be hard. How Can We Learn to Do Family Well?
- Lose the Sense of Entitlement
- Establish Healthy Boundaries
- Work to Maintain Commonality
- Intentional Availability
- Commitment to Honesty
Aspondos – without a treaty or covenant; unable to be appeased or drawn into a truce; unforgiving.

The last days will be marked by a culture that will not end the feud, no matter what a person does.
So, what do we do?

1. Make a Commitment to Forgive and Be Humble Enough to Ask for Forgiveness.

Mark 11:25 (AMPC) – And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and [g]let it drop (leave it, let it go), in order that your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop.

Don’t wait til it’s too late before you let go of unforgiveness that has gripped your heart.

Forgiveness is as much for us as it is for the other person.
2. Become Ok Moving on From People Who Have No Desire to End a Feud.

Romans 12:17, 18 (GNT) – If someone has done you wrong, do not repay him with a wrong. Try to do what everyone considers to be good. 18 Do everything possible ON YOUR PART to live in peace with everybody.
