Hope for today: family

Hope46 While He was still talking to the multitudes, behold, His mother and brothers stood outside, seeking to speak with Him. 47 Then one said to Him, “Look, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You.”

48 But He answered and said to the one who told Him, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” 49 And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! 50 For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” Matthew 12:46-50

  1. I wonder what Mary’s reaction may had been to Jesus’ statement about who His mum and brothers were. I figure she either was perplexed and perhaps somewhat jilted, or she expected such a statement from Him knowing full well what He really meant. To be able to witness such moments would be awesome.

    1. Yes, so many questions, perhaps we will be able to ask her in glory. 🙂 I am thinking perhaps the second choice…”But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart (Luke 2:19). I’m thinking she did this continuously and had greater insight than most. 🙂 Your question reminds me of the song, Mary Did You Know? 🙂 Blessings today!
