Families can be one of the severe pull her/him down syndrome there is in somebody’s life I tell you. Just because they know you, they sometimes assume they have a right to down cast you every time. I witnessed an act of sadness when family members came head on accusing each other of not being supportive to one another. FAMILY no matter what – should always come first. First and foremost; love one another, support each other, celebrate one another, encourage each other and build one another. If your family is fenced with that strong bond of unity nothing can come in and try to destroy or divide. It starts within the family; how can you love a stranger when you don’t love your own family. Show the outside what is in the inside •••LOVE. Charity begins at home.
I encourage sibling bond and love all the time. It’s sad when I talk to young people and I hear stories like “I cannot get along with my sibling/s or I haven’t spoken with my sister or brother for years I mean how is that possible. God designed families, we need to fight for our families not to fight with our families. Talk things over rather than sweep them under carpet. I realized the causes of most family strain sometimes is unforgiveness. In most families there is bitterness, anger, hate and sometimes envy of which it not supposed to be. Once again let’s uplift our families and show support and love to one another.
Colossians 3:13 Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
James 4:11 “Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.”
Proverbs 11:29 He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
