God gives the desolate a home to live in; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity. (Psalm 68:6 NRSV)
Pastor Todd Outcalt tells of attending a family reunion many years ago at a local park. Everyone was excited about re-connecting with distant relatives. But as the family settled in for the picnic, they noticed one young man who seemed out of place. He was painfully thin and dressed in threadbare clothes. No one recognized him. Slowly, it dawned on the Outcalt family that this young man was probably homeless and definitely hungry, and that he had wandered into the family reunion in the hopes of getting a good meal. They decided to make him a member of their family that day. They fed the young stranger platefuls of food, and included him in all their games and activities. And everyone, says Pastor Outcalt, had a great time.

Who do you need to include in God's family?

Dear God, what a blessing to be a part of your family. Show me someone I can bring home to you. In Jesus name, Amen.
