The Essential 100, Day 9

How do your family relationship encourage or discourage your relationship with God? Read Genesis 27 and 28.

God places us into families and his desire is that they are a place that we can learn and grow in Him. Sometimes that’s the case, and sometimes it’s not. However, God desires that we love and respect our families. Even Jacob and Esau with all they were going through, God desired that they treat each other like a family.

How are we allowing our families to encourage us to be more obedient to Christ and how are we allowing our families to discourage us? If our families are not a source of encouragement, how can we still shine the light of God to them in our relationships with them?
