Do you choose to follow Jesus?
Jesus said that he came to divide rather than unite. He challenged us to follow him. In order to follow him, we must take up our cross and follow him. This means that changes must be made. These changes must come from within our families. If you are living with your second wife and have children with her, then you must begin putting your first family first again. It is a tough choice, but if you love God more than your children with her, then you will take up your cross. Here are some of Jesus’ own words on the subject called “family”.
Matthew 10:35-38; Matthew 19:9
