Luke 8:19-21

Loved like family

The message of compassion is repeated in today’s readings. It comes from Proverbs. All rituals must be observed with a sincere heart – by being upright and just, and not haughty nor proud. Jesus goes one step further. When we hear the word of God and put it into practice, we become the brothers and sisters of Jesus. We aren’t mere followers, we are family. The trouble with family is they know you too well! But this is also a great comfort. Jesus wants us to be our true selves with him.
