So, we’ve been talking about the Purpose Driven Life’s 5 purposes. This past Sunday we talked about the purpose of fellowship and how it’s about belonging to the family of God. Maybe I’m the only one, but now I can’t get this song out of my head.
The handshaking and all… lol.
I’ve also been thinking about families. Most families today are broken and I think the church family, unfortunately, is no different. But I think the problem is that we don’t know how to be a family anymore. Most families don’t talk to each other, they don’t eat together, they live individual lives, but just happen to live under one roof. Extended families are often hundreds of miles away. More than half of all marriages end in divorce (inside or outside the church). So, I think, that maybe before we can explore the purpose of belonging to the family of God, we have to take a step back and learn what it means to be a family.
Anyway, just a thought…..
