This daily devotional was written by teens from all over Massachusetts, to help us love throughout Lent. This week we focus on learning to love our famlies.

“Honor your father and mother that it may go well with you and you may live long in the land” Exodus 20:12

It is always good to walk a mile in someone’s shoes to see how things really are for them. This can be important for parents and kids who often don’t see eye to eye. Take a set amount of time, a half day or a full day, and switch roles with a family member. Doing their chores, living as them for a bit might change your perspective on what you think their life is like as opposed to what it actually is. Do not say “I don’t do/act like that” as they are showing you what they perceive.
