Jesus’ mother and brother waited outside the crowded house to see Jesus.

They told a messenger “tell Jesus that his mother and his brother are here now and that we’d like for him to come out and meet with us.”

The messenger relayed the message to Christ. 

Jesus looked on either side of him and said “my brother and mother and sister are the one’s that do the will of God.”

Maybe you think “Wow. That’s harsh. That was his mother and brother…surely that gives them some special treatment.”

But remember, God isn’t a respector of persons. Everyone is on the same playing field: even his earthly family. 

Jesus loves you just as much as he loves every single person he has ever created. He loves you.
