I have a brother, do you? I actually have two brothers so I'm doubly blessed. Growing up I was always glad I had two older brothers. I enjoyed playing football with them, riding snowmobile with them, and always knowing that they would help me if I needed. My oldest brother and I had birthdays just 4 days apart so we often had birthday parties together. Brothers are great.
Oh, there were days when I'm sure they tried to get rid of the little sister that would tag along. There were times when I thought they were mean to me. Sometimes they weren't very fun. But I always knew that they loved me.
The Bible says that as Christians we are like brothers and sisters, all a part of God's family. Today, I hope that you know that your church family will always support you if you are having trouble. We will always be here to help you if you need something. That's what family does, and that's how the family of God acts. We are family, and we are going to get to heaven and live as family together forever! So, happy brother (or sister) day today!
