Mark 3:31-35

This passage in Mark’s Gospel may seem oddly inserted, yet it is clearly intended as a response to the blasphemous scribes. Jesus tells the crowd that, more than family ties, doing God’s will is essential for being part of Jesus’ family, the kingdom of God.

I pray, in words not quite the same as the Psalmist, “Here I am, trying, though not always understanding, not always succeeding. I want to do your will. Please show me the way.”
