Family Matters


All this week, we have been discussing the family.


Where is your family at right now? How are things on the home front?


For many, the word “family” is associated with stress or tension. Maybe words like aggravation or disappointment are words that come to mind. Maybe words like blessed, happy, or fulfilled better describe your current family dynamic. All of us at times could appear on the Jerry Springer show. Dysfunctional describes many of our families. But…the bottom line is that your family is the one that God put you in. With all the problems, heartaches and heartbreaks, it is YOUR family!


Let me encourage you today to go make things right if they are wrong. Do not allow anything to hinder or hurt your relationship with your family. If you need to forgive, then do so. Whatever it is, let it go. It really isn’t worth it. When all is said and done, when the end of your life comes, the only thing that will really matter is relationships. Your relationships with your family are worth fighting for.


Bury the past, look to the future and live for today with great anticipation for great memories being made.


Family really does matter!
