For whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.
– Mark 3 : 31-35
|January 24, 2012 Bible Reading and Gospel|
Today’s Gospel makes us realize who our true family members are. Sometimes we put too much value on blood relations forgetting that Satan can also use them to lure us into sin. Jesus is telling us that God is above all things. Our love for God must always be our topmost priority. The right choice is always clear.
For Jesus, obedience to the will of God is far more important than bloodlines or what has happened in the past. Whatever our history may be, it is what we make of our lives from now on that really matters to God.
