Family Feud

Family Feud is a television game show in which two families compete against each other in an attempt to win - money - cars - chance to return for future games. Hosted by Steve Harvey  it is a fun game to watch. The questions - as well as answers - often beyond ridiculous - sometimes embarrassing. Overall - fun to observe - trying to outguess the contestants - all in the name of sharing the experience. All family conflicts should be filled with as much laughter - fun - rather than anger - fighting. It is unbelievable how many families fail to get along with other families - often each other - leading to both verbal - physical abuse. It is especially sad when members of the same family argue - fight - over issues which end up splitting the family - destroying relationships - often in the name of pride.
God created mankind as one giant human family - many fail to acknowledge this fact. Differences both visible - intellectual - spiritual - emotional - divide the one great human family into thousands of smaller groups. This was never God's plan - He sent Jesus - to heal  the hurts - close the gaps - stimulate conversation - to restore the family as one. In many instances families have been reconciled - many more have yet to heal the hurt - close the gap. As people of God it is up to each of us to - pray - work - help - to defend the family - restore it as God planned. We start in our own family - venture out from there - to the community - the world. It may seem an impossible task - with God - all things are possible.
