Some of our families are…
biological and others are not,
Some good…and sadly some are not so good…
Whether that influence is physical or evident in our character…
Our families have had impact on us
And what we choose to do with that influence…is important
Well…let’s unpack this a little before we move on…
I am delighted to have 6 grandchildren under the age of 4...with another one on the way.
Each one of them is so unique and beautifully made.
Psalm 127:3, “Children are a gift from the Lord;
they are a real blessing.” (GNT)
The newest little guy is only 7 weeks old and such a sweetheart.
It is such a treat to peer into his eyes, searching his profile…
Is that his father’s nose and his mama’s chin?
Will his hair be curly or straight…light or dark?
Oh...his hands…those look a lot like Grandpa’s hands.
But whose feet are those?
Observing his mannerisms, as he gets older,
we will begin to discover his personality and character as it develops.
Will he have a love of adventure…taking risks?
Or will caution be his compass?
What about his heart?
Will he be merciful…kind…slow to anger...compassionate?
Genesis 1:27, “So God created humans to be like himself;
he made men and women.”
Who will this “little man” be?
“Yet some people accepted him and
put their faith in him.
So he gave them the right to be the children of God.
They were not God’s children by nature
or because of any human desires.
God himself was the one who made them his children.”
Won’t you join the family?
Why not seek the right reflection…of the best family there ever was…
The family of God!
“Consider the kind of extravagant love
the Father has lavished on us--
He calls us children of God!
It’s true; we are His beloved children.
And in the same way the world didn’t recognize Him,
the world does not recognize us either.
Who do you resemble?
Lord, Help me to resemble...to look more and more like you every day...to take on the family characteristics of the family of God! Thank you for calling me to be your child and lavishing your love upon my heart. Amen
