God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. – Psalm 68:6
To be without family in the ancient world was near to a death sentence. You would not be eligible for property or rights. You would live as an outcast for the rest of your life. But God had provision for those without families then and now; there is a new family through the gospel – the church. Are you allowing God to set you into a family of faith, or have you settled for a lifestyle that is more desolate than you realize?
