Scripture: Ephesians 1:5-6
In 2020, in all parts of the world, the definition of family has expanded. Who can be in your family is no longer restricted to those who have similar genetics to you. Your family cannot be identified by shared hair and eye color, nose shape or skin tone alone. There are families with an African-American mother and a Caucasian father who are raising a child who looks like them and yet beautifully different from them. This is just one example of multitudes demonstrating how human beings and human families have become diverse.
On the other hand, it is important to acknowledge that there is no free-will to choose the families we are born into, the parents with whom we share DNA. For many, these families are a blessing. For some, this is far less true. Whatever situation we find ourselves in, God ever calls to us, attempting to remind us of one thing. God adopted us into God's family. God chose each one of us, particularly and on purpose. And God gave us the ability to choose many other people to be a part of our adopted families, those who are not related to us by blood but by the love we share. Today, explore this notion of God's family with the activities, links and resources provided.
