There is a longing in every human heart to belong.
Wikipedia says ‘there is a strong and inevitable feeling that exists in every human heart to belong.’
A couple of years ago, a boy called Dorion Only, who had been in foster care all of his 15 years, made a heartfelt plea at his church at the end of a service for someone to adopt him. Within a few short weeks, over 10,000 people enquired and two years later he was adopted into the family of his case worker that had known him since he was seven years old. A wonderful happy ending to the story and a new beginning for Dorion.
Wherever you are from and whoever you are, you have a desire to belong. You may not recognise that right now, but it’s true.
You may belong to a great natural family, or you may not, but God wants you to know there is a greater family – it’s called the Family of God, that you can belong to.
When you come into relationship
(not religion) with Jesus Christ you belong to HIS family.
God wants you to belong. Get into His family. You’re invited.
Join a great church, get planted and become a part.
Do it today.
A daily devotion for a better way of living.
