Today’s scripture: 1 Timothy 5:1-2
If you’re a follower of Christ, you’re part of a world-wide family. Anywhere
you go, you can find a Bible-believing church, and immediately, you’re with
brothers and sisters.
I’m blessed to speak for women’s events and retreats, and it never fails to
bless my heart. Sometimes, I speak at events that are miles from my home. I’ve
never been to these places, and the only contact I have is by phone and email
with the heads of the planning committees. But when I arrive, I am invariably
embraced by sisters I’ve never met. In an instant, I’m with family.
We are blessed to be a part of God’s family, and we should cherish and honor
our relationships with our brothers and sisters. There is no place for gossip
or maligning in our family. No pride. No dissension. No resentment. No
Rather, we should genuinely love, support, and celebrate each other. Doing so
delights our Father’s heart.
