The mother of Jesus and his brothers arrived at the house.
Standing outside, they sent word to Jesus and called him.
A crowd seated around him told him,
“Your mother and your brothers and your sisters
are outside asking for you.”
But he said to them in reply,
“Who are my mother and my brothers?”
And looking around at those seated in the circle he said,
“Here are my mother and my brothers.
For whoever does the will of God
is my brother and sister and mother.” Mk 3:31-35
Jesus teaches us that doing God’s will and following Christ is even more important than family.
Today’s challenge: Do God’s will instead of your own. Do a random act of kindness for a family member.
