Mother, behold your son. VII

Religious ferver, in fact any type of ferver, can make people morally imbalanced. As people living in this world, we have certain obligations to others.

As a son, our Lord had obligations to His mother which He did not disregard. Interestingly, His very first miracle was done at the prompting of His mother despite the fact that His "hour had not yet come."

We know itinerant preachers who, "for the sake of the gospel," neglected their families. We know the bitterness this has caused their children.

From my earliest years, I have known fervent Christians who in their zeal have left miles of flatsom in their wake. 

If you are not a kind person, guess what? You are nothing for the Lord. I Cor 13:3

Our Lord gave up everything when He went to the cross. But He did not give up His obligations to His mother. Then He said to the disciple, "Behold your mother." And from that hour on, the disciple took her to his own home.
