[QTVOTD] Real family…

“Someone said to Him, Listen! Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak to You.  But He replied to the man who told Him, Who is My mother, and who are My brothers?  And stretching out His hand toward [not only the twelve disciples but all]His adherents, He said, Here are My mother and My brothers.  For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother!” Matthew 12:47-50 ->me:  This last week I really began to see what Jesus was talking about in this passage.  Spending time with kids and adults who are sold out to service to the King, in service to Him, helps you see that when we are bound together in Spiritual purpose the relationship will be stronger than blood.  Our relationship with the Lord and each other will last into eternity while our biological family relationships are only for here on earth.  I don’t think that Jesus was trying to insult His family; I think He was just taking the opportunity to make a big point.  I am so thankful that a majority of my earthly family is also my eternal family…a double blessing.
