  • God is relational and we, as his image-bearers, also, have a deep need for connection. So, when a child can't win a parent's approval, a spouse feels unimportant to their partner, or when a stepcouple feels like their family isn't coming together; anxiety and fear set in. Essentially they are asking, "Am I important to you or not?" and that question adds to what gets in the way of finding connection. It's much better to act out of your love for them than worry about their love for you.

Ron: So, are we family or are we not?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: God is relational and we, as his image-bearers, also, have a deep need for connection. Being loved, finding belonging, and giving love—with God and others—is among the deepest longings of our soul.

So, when a child can’t win a parent’s approval, a person feels unaccepted by their peers, a spouse feels unimportant to their partner, or when a stepcouple feels like their family just isn’t coming together; anxiety and fear set in. Essentially they are asking, “Am I important to you or not?” and that question adds to what gets in the way of finding connection. It’s much better to act out of your love for them than worry about their love for you. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
