Do you have any brothers or sisters?
If so, what is your relationship like?
Do you have anyone you refer to by family titles who isn’t technically family? (e.g. a close friend you call a brother or sister; a friend of the family who is referred to as an uncle or aunt?) Why have they become family?
Acting on the Word
Choose one person you know and focus on intentionally treating them more like a Christian brother or sister: forgiving them if there are tensions, helping them with a project or a need, encouraging them, etc.
