Daily Word Of God

Luke 8:19-21

The mother and brothers of Jesus came looking for him, but they could not get to him because of the crowd. He was told, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside and want to see you.” But he said in answer, ‘My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and put it into practice.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Jesus considers all those who “hear the Word of God and practice it” to be “His family.” This means to live His Word is to live in God’s Truth and thus draws us closer to Him.


  • How much do you value God’s Word and how often do you reflect on its Truth and allow yourself to be guided, inspired and challenged by it?


  • Open the Word of God and begin to ponder on the life of Jesus beginning from Mark’s Gospel or Luke’s Gospel daily, even if this means taking up a few minutes of your time.
