Who’s ‘in’… who’s ‘out’… Are we really called to treat everyone like part of the family? Or is this more of an expression of how we should try to live, primarily with other Christians?
This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll show you what scripture teaches and try and convince you that you should treat everyone like they are part of your family. After all… you get too!
Treating others like they are family is an extension of the Good News. A place at your table is a place at our Heavenly Dad’s table. Sharing your resources, home, and time is sharing all that God has poured into your life for your pleasure and for his glory. All of this so that the world would know, love, and trust Him.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
- A Biblical outline of how God created humanity and sees all of his image-bearers.
- The distinction of what it means to be a “child of God”.
- What happens when we treat everyone like family and let God sort out where they’ll spend their eternity.
- What to do if you were raised with a more “closed” view of family.
From this episode:
“Like in the story of the prodigal son found in Luke, the younger brother never stopped BE-ing a son to the father (in reality), but he lived alienated and separated from the father because of his selfish and sinful choices. In this story we see the father rush to restore his son to full privilege and status within the family.”
