Reconciliation Is a Good Thing Wednesday, October 16, 2019
Our God is a God of reconciliation. And any time we can reconcile a relationship, it’s a good thing. Sometimes the tragic journey through the death of a parent or divorce, into a single parent home, and then into a stepfamily home can push a child and their parent far apart. Later if they try to heal their relationship it actually might be the stepparent who is the most hesitant to see them reconnect. Stepparents, you have many good reasons to be cautious but reconciliation is a good thing for all involved. Just remember, Christ is in the reconciliation business and as his disciples so are we.
