In our families, we’re never going to be perfect, but we can strive to be authentic.
Being authentic means to have consistency between what we say we value and what we practice.
For example, when we say, “God is our sovereign source of life, and the one on whom we depend,” we need to live it. We can do this by finding our significance and security from God and not in others. When we trust others to fill the void, they will eventually fail. We need to look to God and lean on Him for emotional wholeness.
