Family Devotion Introduction: Imagine walking into a messy room with piles of clothes and toys all over. Your parents want you to pick up each toy, sock, and shirt and put it in its place. God wants things to be in their perfect place, because he is perfect. God isn't rigid and harsh with his people when they are mixed up and messed up. Because God loves us he sent his son Jesus to die for our sins, and he sends his Holy Spirit to put everything in our lives back into its perfect place. Because God is good, we can trust him to put our lives in order.
