  • A kid innocently asked his friend's stepmom that question. Maybe you can relate. Are you just sort of stuck on the side if you're family by marriage, by half siblings, or distant cousins twice removed? Hey, family can get complicated. Well, at church if Jesus is your Lord, then you're not stuck on the side. You're part of the family of God. And in life, if you're family stuck on the side, you're still family as long as I treat you that way.

Ron: Are you part of the main family or just sort of stuck on the side?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: A kid innocently asked his friend’s stepmom that question. Maybe you can relate. Are you just sort of stuck on the side if you’re family by marriage, by half siblings, or distant cousins twice removed? What if, like in the Ray Stevens song, your father married your stepdaughter and had a son—since you’re married to the baby’s grandmother, are you your own grandpa? Hey, family can get complicated.

Well, at church if Jesus is your Lord, then you’re not stuck on the side. You’re part of the family of God. And in life, if you’re family and stuck on the side, you’re still family as long as I treat you that way. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
