For a long time, our culture almost expected families to look the same way. So much has changed now and so many things are now out in the open. Blended families are practically the norm for so many nowadays. While this can be a good thing, it's also a mess. There are territories to navigate and feelings to be attentive to. Usually, there's some form of hurt to work through as well. What we can find throughout scripture though is a variety of people who experienced the blended family life, especially Jesus. These people's stories don't reveal how to perfectly navigate this life so much as it does reveal who the actual family in your life truly is and what really matters most in that family you have is.
