There is a portion of scripture that I had always thought was a little disrespectful. When Jesus’s mother and brothers sent for Him and He said, "Who are my mother and my brothers?" Jesus was not the one being disrespectful, it was His mother and brothers! Jesus was teaching, had a crowd around Him, and was doing what God sent Him to do, bring salvation to the lost! They didn’t even bother to go in and listen to His teaching, but instead, stood outside and sent someone in to get Him! His family knew who He was, why else would Jesus say to Mary during the wedding at Cana, "Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come." He made it very clear that those who do the will of God are His family, that includes me and you! We are to love everyone, but there is a special connection between those of us who love Jesus, remember to welcome them like family.
For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother." Mark 3:35
