“For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
– Jesus (Matthew 12:50)
Whoever is not about entitlement or merit, it’s a broad blanket.
Does is an action on the part of that whoever.
The will is the alignment with God the Father. As in, when your heart beats for the things his does.
Is is the state of belonging.
Brother, sister, mother is the family reference. The unbreakable tie that lasts and lasts. The membership.
Like all clubs, this one, too, has a membership. But unlike other clubs, this one isn’t exclusive. It’s inclusive.
And isn’t that really the ideal club?
