2014 Lenten Devotional - Saturday, March 29
Posted on March 29, 2014 by Sister Carol Perry

“For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” - Matthew 12:50

In a first century world of strong kinship bonds, Jesus upends everything by redefining family, stretching it to all believers who are aspiring to do the will of God. If we ever feel lonely all we have to do is to look at the veritable army of believers across the world and to know that in a deep sense we belong to each of them and they to us.

Let us luxuriate in our large family of faith as we strive to do our part to be brother and sister to those nearest us in geography.
