“While Jesus was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out
and said to him, ‘Blessed is the womb that carried you
and the breasts at which you nursed.’ He replied, ‘Rather,
blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.’” Lk 11:27-28
We can look at Jesus’ response to the woman all by itself and say,
“Yes, those who follow the Word of God will be blessed
because God’s Word to us is for our benefit,
because God loves us.”
But putting it into the perspective of the woman’s comment
makes a world of difference. It’s not just a pretty little saying.
It is SO important that it even takes priority over our own families.
This BLESSEDNESS that comes from hearing and following the
Word of God is The MOST essential thing in our lives.
And then comes family and job and car and cell phone and tv….
We can actually live without all of those.
But NOT without
