Rudyard Kipling once wrote, “all of us are we–and everyone else is they.” A family shares things like dreams, hopes, possessions, memories, smiles, frowns, and gladness…A family is a clan held together with the glue of love and the cement of mutual respect. A family is shelter from the storm, a friendly port when the waves of life become too wild. No person is ever alone who is a member of a family.Fingertip Facts
So today you might be standing in line waiting with 1000 other people. You’re trying to get the best deal of the year on that gift that is the must purchase item of the year. When you think about, it takes love, patience, and even a little madness to deal with the chaos that is Black Friday. Something to remember when you are out there: Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV
Always remember the best gift that you can ever give your family is an introduction to Jesus Christ. Use the examples that Christ has given us for the family we have been gifted with. Jesus laid down His life, John 3:16, so that His family, that’s you, was protected from the junk that the devil throws at us. Make sure the foundation your family is being built around is the love and direction of Jesus Christ. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Psalm 128:3 ESV Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:3-5 ESV
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for the family you have given me. From the start, I was given a dad and mom that looked to you. Through the example my grandparents gave I learned to love. It was not always smooth, sometimes just plain messy. But the family I had and have now is exactly what I wanted and could not do without. Thank you again. In Jesus Name Amen
