2 Samuel 1:1-4, 11-12, 17, 19, 23-27; Psalm 80; Mark 3:20-21
A worry for Jesus’ relatives
He is creating a fuss isn’t he? Jesus has selected twelve apostles and now everybody is thronging around him. Such was the chaos that even his family was seriously concerned. His relatives describe him as “out of his mind,” and what’s more he’s not eating properly! Mark’s readers discover what the proper reaction to Jesus is. They learn that of all those who crowd around Jesus, the only ones who can really be considered his mother and brothers and sisters are those “who do the will of God.” How faithfully do I follow the will of God?
