Mark 3:20-21 Reflection – Gathered Around Jesus

Reflection on Mark 3:20-21 ~

I can understand why Jesus’s relatives tried to save Him because of all the time he spent serving others. Without the same unlimited resources as Jesus, we can overextend ourselves. My wife and a couple of other close people in my life have let me know when I do so. I am still not sure if I was out of my mind for Jesus in those moments. If this resonates with you, please also take time to just be like others in the crowd gathered around Jesus.

Then he went home; 20 and the crowd came together again, so that they could not even eat. 21 When his family heard it, they went out to restrain him, for people were saying, “He has gone out of his mind.”

Thank you for meditating on this daily Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Mark 3:20-21.
