Anyone who knows our family knows that we have only two rules for in our household.
Rule # 1 – Stay with your Family
Rule # 2 – Don’t touch anything
The first rule is a very important rule to follow for one main reason and it carries with it not only a physical benefit but there is a spiritual application with it as well. Let me show you. The main reason to obey rule number one:
It will keep you safe with the people that love you.
If a child runs off away from their parents it makes it that much more difficult to keep them safe. If I can’t physically see you and you can’t physically see me then I don’t know where you are and you don’t know where I am. I don’t know what’s going on nor who you are with. That’s dangerous.
Spiritually speaking Christians need to stay with their family, too. If you haven’t seen me and I haven’t seen you it makes it that much more difficult to keep you safe from the devil’s harm. We don’t know who you are with and we can’t protect you as easy. Make sure that you are connected and involved with your family so that we can keep each other safe in the loving, caring arms of Jesus.
I’ll touch on Rule # 2 in another Daily Bread. For now, stay with your family!
I love you,
