"My Mother and My Brothers"

But he said to them, "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it."

Christ established a new family in which we find the intimacies of love, not in the circumstances of blood ties but in the deeper loyalties of doing God's will. God's will reaches deeper into our lives than do the roots of family trees.

Who are some "mothers" and "brothers" God has given to you?

PRAYER: Dear God, lead me ever deeper into the community of people who are doing your will. Teach me how to live with and enjoy the expanded family that you provide in this Christian way. Amen.
