Don't make your "screwed up" family into an IDOL.....

Uncle Bill he drank too much.

Uncle Bob he had at least five women pregnant out of wedlock.

Billy Joe, couldn't even hold down a job for 6 months and constantly in and out of rehab.

Aunt Sue, couldn't keep her mouth shut and constantly borrowing stuff from others.

Aunt May, couldn't keep a man in her life and constantly swore at those men.

......Cousin Frank, Cousin Lilly and Cousin Kelly all joined up with LGBT campaigning.....and Frank came home with "aids".

Ok, maybe this could be your family.  Maybe your dad was abusive.  Maybe your mom was never "a mother."

Be real.

Do NOT make these people or their lifestyle your IDOL.

It will burden you.  It will burden your family members.

Follow Jesus.  He knows WHY the people have these issues in their heart.  You do NOT have to carry that burden.  HE carried that Burden.

Do not CATER to their issues.  You do not have to be afraid of their issues.  But do NOT cater to their issues.  Especially if there is an "angry" man among the midst.  Anger issues ARE necessary to be dealt with by Gospel, and Gospel alone.

Your family may have talent despite these issues.  Painting?  Phd's?  Successful business?.....

Get the point?  If this sound like your family, or a neighbor's family do not make their "bad choices" the idol.

One day all the dust will settle.  The persecuted ones in the family will get the crown of victory.  All their time spent hiding their bible.  Hiding their ability to serve local orphans.  Hiding the time they had to take bullets to get a friend out of the nightclub.  all that Stuff will get revealed.
