As families gather all over the world to celebrate Christmas and la Noche Buena, some struggle with this claim. Family time can be a tense time, a hard time.
But God placed you in your family for a reason.
This truth is woven all through scripture. Over and over again God claims to choose the place and time in which we enter the world. He knows the families and ethnic communities in which he is placing us. And he places us anyways.
In our track at LaFe10, we really want students to wrestle with this phrase:
"God placed you in our familia so that we can bless the crowd"God's placement of people in families is connected with the bigger things he's doing in the world. You were placed in your family so that you can be a blessing to others.
As we celebrate Jesus and his placement in the human family, we testify to this truth. God placed Jesus into our family so that we all can be a blessing to others.
How has your family helped you be a blessing to others?
