How God uses our family to refine us
"As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord" - Joshua 24:15b
Families are one of the most important gifts that God has given us. They are a source of love, joy, and support. However, they can also be a source of difficulty and pain. As much as we love our families, they are not perfect. Each member of the family has their own flaws, and there are times when tensions arise.
But God can use our families to refine us. He uses the conflicts and challenges that we face in our family relationships to shape us into the people that He wants us to be. We are called to serve Him as a family, and through that service, we are refined and made more like Him.
The Bible tells us in
So, let us embrace our families as the gifts that they are, flaws and all. Let us serve the Lord together and allow Him to use our family relationships to refine us and draw us closer to Him.
Pray with us
Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of family. Help us to remember that even in our challenges and struggles with one another, You are using these situations to refine us and make us more like You. Help us to trust in Your plan and your timing, and to rely on Your grace and mercy to guide us as we grow and learn together as a family. May our family be a reflection of Your love and grace, and may we continually seek to glorify You in all that we do. In Jesus' name, Amen.
