Different & the Same–God’s Principles Still Apply

with Ron Deal | August 26, 2020

Every family and every season of family life has its unique challenges; blended families are no different. What's the same, though, is that God's principles for holy living still apply for everyone. In a biological family stress tends to move people toward one another when things get hard. But in a new stepfamily, stress tends to push insiders and outsiders apart. Thankfully God's instruction that we cast our cares on him and manage conflict with kindness and love still works in ether situation.

Ron: Yes, stepfamilies are different than biological families, but God’s principles still apply.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: That really is good to know. Every family and every season of family life has its unique challenges; blended families are no different. What’s the same, though, is that God’s principles for holy living still apply no matter what kind of family you have.

Case in point: In a biological family stress tends to move people toward one another; they naturally reach for each other when things get hard. But in a new stepfamily, stress tends to push insiders and outsiders apart. Thankfully God’s instruction that we cast our cares on him and manage conflict with kindness and love still works in ether situation. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
