Two of the biggest influences in our spiritual development are our church and our families. Imagine the impact that could happen if both worked together like God designed them to.
Big Idea: When family and church compete, we lose.
Scripture: Luke 14:25-26, Deuteronomy 6:10-15
Luke 14: 25-26
25Now great crowds were traveling with him. So he turned and said to them: 26“If anyone comes to me and does not hatehis own father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters — yes, and even his own life — he cannot be my disciple.
Deuteronomy 6: 10-15a
10“When the Lord your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that he would give you — a land with large and beautiful cities that you did not build, 11houses full of every good thing that you did not fill them with, cisterns that you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves that you did not plant — and when you eat and are satisfied, 12be careful not to forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. 13Fear the Lord your God, worship him, and take your oaths in his name. 14Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you, 15for the Lord your God, who is among you, is a jealous God.
