Hear & Observe The Word Of God


Here is today’s short Gospel from Luke 11:27-28While 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.”

I leave no doubt as a blogger that I desire daily to love the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind and strength and everyone the Lord places in my life. I also love the Blessed Virgin Mary. I have read comments of some who like to twist this passage to say that Jesus “put down” His Mother with this statement. I will respond with “nonsense!” Jesus, of all people, would follow the commandment to honor your mother and father. Lastly, Mary responded to the Angel Gabriel, “let it be done to me according to your Word” and became the Mother of God. I think that is probably the greatest example of observing the Word of God.

Hear & Observe The Word Of God

One thought on “Hear & Observe The Word Of God

  1. Yes, and probably denominations that downplay Mary will use this as justification for doing so. I think that Jesus was telling people that it’s not ONLY people who are granted special favor by God who are blessed (like His mother), but anyone who strives to be a faithful son or daughter of God. In other words, even if we are not singled out by God to be great leaders or otherwise “special,” it doesn’t mean that we do not have a unique role to play in God’s Kingdom and must always be aware of the need to honor God, His Word and His will.
