We are family

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. 1 Jn. 3:1

God has made us more than subjects of a King or citizens of a Kingdom. He is all about relationship and His love has caused us to be related to Him and to one another as children and heirs. He established a family relationship between Himself and us. Then God put together people who aren’t related and made them family. Faith communities become families. Whatever else we are to one another, whether it be friend, neighbor, teammate, boss, service provider, support staff, business associate, student, teacher, colleague, salesperson, artisan, entertainer, or any other role, we are also family. What a blessing to know that none of us are alone and that all of us are connected on a deep level because of God’s love for us.

Lord, thanks for the family y ou’ve formed for me.
