Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
In a literal sense, this has not been an issue in my lifetime. However, if we expand this to include extended family, and change "provide for" ever so slightly to include checking in on, writing letters to, calling, acknowledging birthdays and other events, I am an abysmal failure. I would never allow a family member to suffer if I knew there was some way I could help. But I could be much more active in showing my love for my extended family.
Holy Lord, you know my heart. Help me to make it a priority to share the love I have for my extended family. I am not too busy to do that. You have shown me so much love. I am grateful. Amen
