A minister brought home a 12-year-old boy named Roger. His parents had died from a drug overdose. There was no one to care for Roger, so this couple decided they’d just raise him as if he were one of their own sons. At first it was quite difficult for Roger to adjust to his new home--an environment free of heroine-addicted adults Every day, several times a day, you would hear this couple say: "No, no. That’s not how we behave in this family." "No, no. You don’t have to fight or hurt other people to get what you want." "No, no, Roger, we expect you to show respect in this family." And in time Roger began to change. Now, did Roger have to make all those changes in order to become a part of the family? No. He was made a part of the family simply by the grace of that father. But did he then have to do a lot of hard work because he was in the family? You bet he did. It was tough to change, and he had to work at it. But he was motivated by gratitude for the great love he had received.
