May 10, 2015 - Mothers Day: It's A Family Affair
(familial intimacy)
Pastor John • 1 Timothy 5:3-8 Ephesians 6:1-4

One of the many Greek words for love is "storge" which refers to a familial type of love or bond. God designed the family to become the classroom of relational skills, for the intimacy of the domestic unit is both its blessing and its challenge. Paul lets us know through these and other passages that familial love is reciprocal by its very nature, that there must be healthy boundaries, that honor is both innate and earned, and that rules must have an element of elasticity to them. Because at the end of the day, the whole purpose of the family is to be a sign-post of the Kingdom, pointing to Jesus and His incredible love for His family (us).
