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 wants us to realize that more than a parent who should love and support their child, blessed are those who love and support and follow Him because they heard the word of God and believed it. Do you believe the word of God? Do you follow Him? Do you believe in all that He teaches? To be blessed, you must.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I have heard, I believe and I follow your word! In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
The Lord remembers his covenant forever, Alleluia.
