Re:Verse passage – Mark 3:31-35 (day two)
For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother. vs. 35
Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you. Exodus 20:12
Caring for each other seems to be a consistent thread of scripture. Whether it is to obey, or to assist, the Bible has much to say about how we should interact with neighbors (everyone) and family (believers). Bob Goff wrote a book confronting this topic called Everybody, Always, and the premise is that we are called to love and serve everybody, always. It’s what Jesus has been saying all along. In the wake of last week’s storms it was an incredible picture of the church to see phone calls and texts from all over the city making sure their brothers and sisters had everything they needed. We don’t need a crisis to act like Jesus. He has given us permission already.
