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

The mother of Jesus and his brothers came to him but were unable to join him because of the crowd. He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you.” He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.”

Jesus has told us that we must be willing to leave everything behind for Him, including our mothers, fathers and families. We must be willing to live just for Him, listen to His word and do His will. What have you given up for the Lord?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, you come first in my life, not always, but now I understand now that all I have comes from you. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen!

Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
