Brothers and Sisters

When we become aware of our Father, we become aware of our brothers and sisters.  Jesus does not teach us to pray, “MY father”.  He teaches us to pray, “OUR Father”.  Every prayer, every morning is a consciousness of others who are related to us by a common love for Christ.  Some of God’s children differ from us in doctrine.  The tensions can be very real, but the assignment stands.  If we only love those who agree with us on all points who will be left?  Some of God’s children have different stations in life.  They are poor in this world but rich in faith.  Some of God’s children are separated from us by continents and culture, but it is remarkable how similar we are on our knees.  Pray this morning, friend!  Pray with an awareness of your large family and your powerful Father.  Then stand and act it.  If God is our Father, we have many brothers and sisters.
