Healthy Kingdom Family | week 5 | …the elder brother
October 14, 2018
And (Jesus) said, “A man had two sons. The younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of the estate that falls to me.’ So he divided his wealth between them…”
– Luke 15.11,12 (NASB)
Family is a gift from our loving and good heavenly Father. Family is His design for the church as well as society in general. Healthy families impart LIFE; providing a deep sense of acceptance and belonging as we grow into the men and women, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers we were always meant to be. And yet, some of the deepest wounds and hurts in our lives come from brokenness in families, both in the home and church. What might it look like for us to build healthy kingdom family that not only nurtures and grows, but also heals and restores?
Over the next 3 weeks, Kevan will be continuing our new fall series, “Healthy Kingdom Family”, using Luke 15 as a base text. This Sunday morning’s teaching, “the elder brother”, will provide the context for our small group discussion and ministry throughout the week. Don’t miss it…
