Who are My Mother and My Brothers?
Jesus asked, “Who are my mother and my brothers?” Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother” (Mark 3:31-35).
God gives an invitation to the thirsty: “Come all you who are thirsty, come to the water, and you who have no money, Come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labour on what does not satisfy.< Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare” (Isaiah 55:1-2). “There is no peace, says my God, for the wicked.”
“And it will be said: Build up, build up, prepare the road. Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people. For this is what the high and lofty one says, he who lives for ever, His name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. I will not accuse for ever, nor will I always be angry for then the spirit of man would grow faint before me.”
