Spiritual Inspiration Now

Luke 8:20-21
Jesus was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you. He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.”

Jesus was not disrespecting his mother and family with this comment. He also preached to “honor your father and mother” and to “love your neighbor as yourself.” This is just another time when Jesus knocks down boundaries that separate us. All those who hear God’s call and then act on it are family…one body of Christ. Are we listening to God speak through scripture, through silent, meditative prayer, through nature or simply in the quiet of our hearts? And are we acting on what God is telling us to do? You cannot hear God speak to you if you never make an attempt to listen.

Suggested song of the day– “Turn Off the Noise” on the Listen to Your Heart album.
