Joseph said, Hurry and bring my father down here. Then he fell upon his brother Benjamins neck and wept, and Benjamin wept upon his neck. And he kissed all his brothers and wept upon them. After that his brothers talked with him. – Genesis 45:13-15
Theres just something special about family. They see the best in us and know the worst of us. Were not like turtles that are born and left to make our way through the world alone. God put us into a family, where the young are to be protected, where every member learns and grows together, where we can find comfort, laughter and love. Not everyone lives up to Gods plan for the family, but He equips us with a generous supply of grace and forgiveness to help us through.
Taking time for family fun and making memories with those closest to us lays the foundation for a healthy, happy life now and for living as a member of Gods family forever.
