I recently enjoyed a wildlife documentary that showed life in a lion pack. This was a most interesting revelation on family in the wild. All the lions in this pack live, hunt and run together through the different seasons of life. What caught my attention the most was the fact that even though the lion is a strong animal, it can’t survive without it’s pack, because protection is in the pack. The many animals fighting for territory in the jungle would gladly kill every solitary lion. That is why the lion stays with it’s pack.
Your spiritual and natural family provide protection in a similar manner. The many things out there that would want to take advantage of you and reduce you to breakfast, are kept at bay by your family. We all know how babies and youth need protection, but we tend to forget that even full grown men need protection. You are never out of reach from the many things trying to reduce you to a statistic but you are truly covered and protected by the blessing of family. Many have committed inexcusable errors which would have been avoided had they stayed connected with family. Remember, there is protection in the pack.
SCRIPTURE READING: Ecclesiastes 4:12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Family is one of the greatest gift given to me. Your word is clear, indeed two can withstand anything. As a family we can’t be broken because we’re under Your protection in Jesus name amen.
