Your Place in the Family

God has some firstborn children who seem to have so many privileges, but are really burdened with responsibility. He appreciates all the help, but would love to tell them to be still and know that He is God.

God has some middle children who feel left out and pushed aside. He would love for them to know that like the sparrows, He is keeping a special watch over them to see that they don’t fall away.
God has some baby children that seem to always get their way but feel like their day will never come. He would love to remind them that patience is possible and to whom much is given, much is expected.

And for all the rest that fall somewhere around the others, we are all a family parented by God. Believers together, knowing that no matter our role in the family, love binds us and holds us to each other.

Happy Mother’s Day !
