We all have them.
We never want others to know about them.
They always seem to show up at the worst times.
The skeletons in the closet. We work hard to make sure people don’t become aware of those things that cause us to blush and squirm. Often, those skeletons have to do with our families.
It might be that distant uncle that no one invites to family picnic. Maybe it is the scandal from a few generations back. Maybe it’s you!
In all seriousness, we do experience circumstance in our families that can cause great pain and heartache. We know of broken homes, hurting relationships, and deep emotional scars. Families can be very dysfunctional.
In this week’s lesson we are going to see that the dysfunction in our homes does not thwart God’s purposes. He remains trustworthy in spite of brokenness and failures.
