Family: A Gift, but Not the Giver

An important reminder from Pastor Ray Ortlund:

God gave us family. And what a precious gift! But it is a gift, not the Giver. Jesus will not allow himself to be demoted to High Priest in the Temple Of Family Values.  When we come to Christ, we leave that Temple behind, never to return, and we spend the rest of our lives recruiting our families to worship Jesus.
