Family Matters!

He is not ashamed to call them brothers.

Hebrews 2:11

      Christmas greeting card messages often review the year, and some of them tell of a family reunion that was enjoyed. My late wife’s side of the family has met for family reunions once every three years over the period of five decades.
      If your family gets together from time to time, you know what a special time it is for re-connecting, storytelling, laughter, meals, and worship. However, as baptized children of our heavenly Father, we have been adopted into a larger family. How blessed we are!
      Family members care for, help, pray for, and encourage one another. May we gratefully do the same for our biological and spiritual family. Lord Jesus, how privileged I am that You call me your brother or sister.
