"He replied to him, 'Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?'" NIV
"But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? And who are my brethren?" KJV
Jesus knew, as the Son of Man, it was his own earthly family waiting to speak with him. But as the Son of God, he knew that he had responsibility for all those who followed him. If we follow Jesus' example, we will attend to and minister not only to our earthly families, but to the whole family of God.
Heavenly Father, please help us to remember that all those in your family are our family and we are to love and minister to them as much as we would our own earthly families. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
