FamilyLife Blended®with Ron L. Deal
Different & the Same—Value One Another Friday, September 18, 2020
In biological families, when a husband and wife move toward each other, they bring their children with them. Children are blessed when mom and dad love each other and spend time together. But in the beginning in a stepfamily it’s different. When a parent and stepparent spend time together children sometimes feel pushed aside. This naturally puts the biological parent in the middle. That’s a big difference between biological families and blended families. But what’s the same is how God’s instruction to extend grace and apply patience to relationships softens the competition and brings people together.
