Ron: Hey, have you ever noticed that God uses family to grow us up?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: I mean, for example, God uses the experience of being a child to teach us obedience and respect for authority, right? Being a parent, for example, to teach us how much He loves us and how far He’d go to rescue us. If you’re single, He’s teaching you about brotherly love and living in community with others. Living in a blended family teaches a lot of things but one of them is the power of grace. You know, to welcome the outsider in. Turn a stranger into a family member. 

Yes, God uses families. All kinds of families. It’s one of his best tools for shaping us into the image of Christ. So I’m wondering, what is your family teaching? I’m Ron Deal.
