“Go Home to Your Family…”

Mark 5-19

Jesus did not let the healed man come with him. Instead, Jesus told him to go home to his family and tell them about the Lord. Powerful. It is easy to think the Lord always wants us to go, go go, whether it be another activity, living elsewhere, or something else. And, sometimes he does. But, this verse makes it clear: Sometimes Jesus wants us to stay put. Let’s embrace the peace in knowing that as you raise your kids, you are right where you need to be. You can be a follower of Jesus by “going home to your family and telling them how much the Lord has done for you.”
