“Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.”
I came from a crazy, broken home, but when I became a Christian, my life changed. In my early days as a Christian, I would meet some kids who were rebelling against God. They told me how they came from homes where there was hypocrisy.
So I told them they had no idea what a bad home looked like. Why would they not walk with God?
Of course, I later began to realize what hypocrisy does. In some ways, it’s almost better to come from a home of complete unbelief than from a home where parents say they’re Christians but don’t live it.
