Today we are taking a look at God’s vision for family. It is hard to imagine family interaction between the Father, His Son, the Holy Spirit, and Wisdom herself. And yet this is the family picture where we find our roots. Just as the Father loves His Son, we too are offered the gracious love of our Father through His Son Jesus.
It is breath-taking how simple God designed family life to be, and how complicated we have and continue to make it. This is because family life, just like any part of a solid life, gets confused within the many voices within and without. But having a God-family is within reach. But it is all about heart – and not merely “what” we do. It takes spiritual faithfulness to bless the earth with a family filled with love and devotion to one another. And, as you can tell by looking around, it is a commodity.
It is up to us to cut through the noise and establish a home that best reflects the family values God reveals to us – by how He treats His own family.
To be a part of God’s family has amazing benefits. We don’t have to work for His love. We don’t have to hide our weaknesses. We don’t have to worry about pleasing a Father Who does not understand our challenges and foibles. What a relief – and what a motivator!
