Dysfunctional Family

Can you imagine marrying into a family where for decades the groom's family rejects you? At different times, different family members rise up with something struck in their craw about you, with lots of murmuring, resentment and stirring up other family members against you. Then it dies down and someone else takes the lead of offense against you....just a never ending parade of family rejection?

 Yeah, I think that pretty much describes how Messianic Jews feel often times about their relationship with about half the Church, too. Some handle that pain of it better than others, but the ones who handle it like Yeshua - giving mercy and forgiveness - keep the hope for peace despite the rejection.

 Many waters cannot quench love, nor can rivers drown it.
If a man tried to buy love with all his wealth, his offer would be utterly scorned.
