Who is My Mother?

On Mothers’ Day, we honor our mothers for the gifts of God that they are or were in our lives. They wear so many hats as they nurture us to be the people that we become. Clearly, we are to honor them as the 4th Commandment requires. But in today’s text, it can seem that Jesus is being a tad dishonorable to his mother, Mary. When he asked this question, “Who is my mother?”  it wasn’t that he dishonored her, but he set the stage for a whole different way to determine who belongs to the family of God and who does not.
