Jesus is told His family is outside but they can’t get near to Him because of the crowd. He responds:
My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice. Luke 8:20
Today you are invited to consider what may be seen as harsh words from Jesus about His family. How do you feel about them – as a member of Jesus’ actual family? And as a member of His family who follow and obey Him? How would you feel if a family member puts others before you? How do you feel if family members put you first? How does the fact that Jesus calls you a member of His family when you follow and obey Him? How do your answers to these questions impact your relationships – with your family, with other Christ-followers, and with Jesus Himself? What is Jesus saying to you today?
May God bless you as you hear and follow Him today.
