I am grateful today for family. I had meaningful interactions with all three of my children, I reunited with my youngest sister and tomorrow my mom will join us in Florida.
Family has many meanings. Sometimes it is the people we share biological beginnings with, other times it is the people who share our lives at pivotal moments, and still other times it is the people who stick around for the ordinary, mundane moments.
Whoever is in your sphere right now, spend a few moments giving thanks for their presence. If you find yourself short on familial connections, ask your Father to send someone with skin on. Provision is only one request away.
19Then Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see him, but they couldn’t get to him because of the crowd. 20Someone told Jesus, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, and they want to see you.”21Jesus replied, “My mother and my brothers are all those who hear God’s word and obey it.”Like 8:19-21
10Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.Galatians 6:10
