In honour of Family Day...
Matthew 12:47-49 (NIV-1984)
Was Jesus being mean? No. He was making a point about the family of God. Yes our physical family is important down here, for sure, no doubt. Never neglect them. But where does family stop? According to Jesus our family extends to anyone who is a believer. Male or female. Old and young. Think about that, as believers we have a HUGE family to celebrate! The family of God! It's no coincidence that wherever we go in the world, as soon as two people find out they're Christians, they can relate in a way that no other people can - because they're family!
This Family Day, yes, by all means celebrate with your family. But for those who are distant from parents or kids or siblings, etc. Just remember, Family Day can be celebrated with anyone who is a believer! You don't have to be alone! We are part of the biggest family on Earth! In history!
Have a great Family Day everyone! God bless!
