We were made to thrive in a family. This thought seems counterintuitive when our families look so broken. However, from the very beginning, God intended for us to build families and create communities of people formed in the image of God. This effort takes work, but family does not have to end at our flesh and blood, which is the greatest gift of all. For all those who surrender to Christ are adopted as children of God and become members of the household of God. Don’t run from family, but embrace it as God intended—intimacy with Him in relationship with others.
