About Today Readings

Micah 7:14-15, 18-20. Psalm 84(85):2-8. Matthew 12:46-50.

Lord, show us your mercy and love—Psalm 84(85):2-8.

‘Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?’

When we follow Jesus, we are welcomed as part of his family.

We experience connection, warmth and belonging. For Christians, belonging together in community with Christ and one another leads us to mission.

If we are community and family, then it follows we should behave as family. We must try to love steadfastly and unconditionally, through difficult times.

It will not help to pretend we do not hear, see or feel our sister or brother in their pain. Our close enduring relationships within family thrive when we are faithful, generous and patient.

And if Jesus is part of our family, then he asks the same of each of us.
