Family Takes Care of Family (Luke 7)

with Ron Deal | March 5, 2019

I think the principle applies to more than just our physical family. In Luke 7 in the Bible Jesus takes great compassion on a widow. She's lost her husband and her only son, which means she is in trouble financially but Jesus cares for her. We should have that kind of concern for one another. I've wondered, what if we, the church, stepped in with money and provision for the needy in our spiritual family instead of asking the government to? Well, care wouldn't be cold. It would be bathed in love.
