Feed the tares to the chickens!

Most of us would probably agree that to feel like "family," regardless of human parentage, is to feel the warmest kind of acceptance. Even though relationships can sometimes offer plenty of opportunity for conflict resolution, we're deeply blessed by the commitment of family and friends to help, love, and uplift one another.

The Bible describes this kind of love. In one parable, the father of a prodigal son who for some time showed no sign of appreciation for his dad, runs to embrace his son when he comes home. In another, the good Samaritan lovingly helps a stranger (see Luke 15:11-20; 10:30-35).
