How would you describe your family dynamics growing up?
How does society define the purpose for the family unit?
How does scripture define the purpose for the family unit?
“What if God didn’t design marriage [family] to be easier? What if God had an end in mind that went beyond our happiness, our comfort, and our desire to be infatuated and happy as if the world were a perfect place? What if God designed marriage [the home] to make us holy more than to make us happy?”
- Gary Thomas (Sacred Marriage, pg. 13)
When families forgive each other – they feel God’s love and mercy.
When families walk through disappointment – they feel God’s grace and strength.
When families grieve with each other – they feel God’s comfort.
When families hurt each other – they feel the depth to what God will grant forgiveness
Consider this today:
God designed the family to be
a ME-CENTERED world.
Lord, I need you in my home. I need you in my marriages. I need you as I love my family, learn to forgive one another, see the best in each other and as I pray for all. With your help, I can learn to submit, love and honor each other and in doing so, see you so much more clearly. I long to see you my home. Amen.
Personal reflection this week ...
> Take time to reflect this week on your family dynamics. Schedule a meal time or an evening together to discuss your strengths and weaknesses as a family.
> How can seeing God’s purpose in the family create a stronger bond among you? How can you embrace your weaknesses as God’s transforming power in you?
