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.”
Jesus calls us to leave behind everything to follow Him. Nothing in our lives should be more important than the word of God. Are you ready for that radical decision? Are you ready to listen to Him and follow where He leads you, leaving behind your old self? Your reward will be great when you do.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, following you has brought me more joy, happiness and peace than I have ever known before. Saying yes to your call is not always easy, but you always pave the path you lay before me in love. In Jesus’ holy name, I give you all the honor, praise and glory, Amen.
The Lord remembers his covenant forever, Alleluia!
