May the word of the Lord fill you with love and bring you peace.

While Jesus was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out and said to him,“Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts at which you nursed.” He replied, “Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.” 

This seems such an odd statement for Jesus to make. But when we look at what He tells us to do, it is not so unusual. He has called us to leave our life behind to follow Him, to give up our life to follow Him. Are you ready to do that? Can you give up everything for Him? Your eternity depends on how you answer. He is worth more than anything you can own here on earth. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father, may I always be ready to do your bidding. Please help me to keep my ears and my heart open to your words and be ready to follow your way. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen. 

The Lord remembers his covenant forever, Alleluia.
