The True Christian Family?

In today’s Daily Reflection, Mark Roberts talks about Matthew 12:50 using some very strong language.

“Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!”
Matthew 12:50

He points out that this applies even to “Christian” families, or very specifically to Christians.  Despite “Christian” “family values,” it is Jesus Christ’s value to us that is important.  Mark Roberts makes the arguement, which is a good one, is that we must be very careful to not put our families above Christ.

Hard words to stomach, frankly, which doesn’t make them any less true.   However, no matter how true they are, they are still very hard to live by.
