Mark 3:31-35

This passage in Mark’s Gospel is clearly intended as continuation of his response to the blasphemous scribes. It is not important that he has blood relatives present. Jesus tells the crowd that, more than family ties, doing God’s will is what is necessary to be part of Jesus’ family, the kingdom of God.

I realize that when I cannot seem to understand your will for me, it has less to do with my mind and more with my heart. You will me to be the best me I can be, but I cannot do it alone. I need you.
