"They had to put family second in order to put Jesus first. And here we see that even Jesus had to do this. He had to put His parents second so that He could put His Heavenly Father First." Stating that family comes first—that nothing comes before family, that family means everything—sounds good, right? It sounds noble and virtuous. But that's not quite right. Family is pretty important, but it's not the MOST important thing. https://www.thecrossingchurch.com/staff/patrick-miller/ (Patrick) explains why as he reads through https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+2%3A41-52&version=NIV (Luke 2.41-52) to continue on series on https://www.thecrossingchurch.com/podcast-series/how-to-follow-jesus/ (Learning to Follow Jesus).
