“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 8:21

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“My mother and my brethren

are those who hear the word of God and do it.”

.

– Luke 8:21

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus tells us that if we follow Him, listen to Him, and do God’s will,

we will share in His life as intimately as if we were members of His family.

.

As we follow Jesus more closely,

we find that our bonds to Him are indeed stronger than those to our natural family.

.

The bonds of blood are certainly strong,

but stronger still are the bonds originating in a deep love for Christ.

.

This is also why it is said that a family that prays together stays together

– together, as part of Christ’s family!

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Everyone who does the will of the Father, that is to say, who obeys Him,

is a brother or sister of Christ,

because he is like Him who fulfilled the will of His Father.”

.

– St. Thomas

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

My Lord and my God,

I want to belong to Your family,

I want to belong in Your family.

Teach me, Lord,

help me, Lord,

I want to do Your will.
