Out of His Mind?
Your family giving you grief about being a Christian? Jesus himself had to contend with a family that thought he was crazy. “Now Jesus went home, and a crowd gathered so that they were not able to eat. When his family heard this they went out to restrain him, for they said, ‘He is out of his mind.’” (Mark 3:20-21) If Mary the mother of Jesus failed to understand who he really was, and he was perfect, how much more should we imperfect Christians expect misunderstandings in our own families? Your folks think you’re crazy for following Jesus? You’re in good company. Stand fast!
