Jesus knew who his real brothers and sisters were, and there was no blood connection between them at all. He saw his disciples, and the others who had decided to follow him, as his true family. Our world has a very distinct way of seeing each other, and unfortunately that view is completely opposite of what Jesus wants from us. We are all very different, and we all come from very different experiences. But that doesn’t mean that we cannot be brothers and sisters in Christ. Jesus is the only way that we can get to the Father, and through him we can all live at peace with each other. It is the only way that the violence and hatred in our world will ever end.
