Luke makes a brief note that gives you an idea of what a blessing it is to be a family - a biological family and part of the family of God,
“They all accompanied us, with wives and children, till we were out of the city. And we knelt down on the shore and prayed.” Acts 21:5
Families are always better off when they gather together with the church to pray and sing and cry and learn and walk with godly men like Paul on their journeys. If you have a family, take your family with you on your ministry journeys… It might not be the best thing to get a babysitter.
