The need for family // 04-06-19

“Father to the fatherless, defender of widows— this is God, whose dwelling is holy. God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.” Psalms‬ ‭68:5-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Here’s one definition of family: ‘A group of people, usually of the same blood (but do not have to be), who genuinely love, trust, care about, and look out for each other. Not to be mistaken with relatives sharing the same household who hate each other.’ Lol, I pray we never become that! When we are an active part of God’s family, we get to be the antidote to loneliness. Being present in church and as church gives us so many opportunities to show love, trust, care, and to look out for each other, creating that sense of home and belonging, but it takes all of us to do it! Who do you know who might be struggling with loneliness right now? Pray that God would show you someone and go call them today 😊
