What Will You Choose?

Better a dry crust with peace and quiet, than a house full of feasting, with strife.

proverbs 17:1

Incestuous families do not have peace and quiet.

Why is it so hard to walk away from these atrocious families? Horrifyingly wicked they hold nothing for us.

Yet, we stay.

Why?

Are we so lonely that we cannot walk life without monsters beside us? Or is it the message they have left in us that it is our job to love them.

To be clear, I do not believe it is my job to love them. They need God’s love and forgiveness.

What can my love do for them?

Walk away and be free. Leave them at the foot of the cross. It’s His redemptive work that will capture them. Nothing in our arsenal of tools can change these people.

Stop trying.
