Building Healthy Families

Posted May 23, 2024

Building Healthy Families: What percent of people in your congregation are adopted? Any guesses? If you guessed anything less than 100 percent, you’re wrong. We’re all children of God through adoption! Our very salvation begins with adoption! “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.” (Gal. 4:4-5) In today’s culture, adoption is seen as a last resort for infertile couples; a way to find a child for the couple. A Biblical view of adoption is instead child – not couple - focused: we desire to bring children to a new life in Christ through a faith-giving act of love. How might you help share the joy of Christian adoption with others? Lutheran Family Service
