Matthew 10:37-38 (KJV)

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

There is a simple truth often overlooked in these words of Jesus. When we love Jesus more than anything else in life, more than father or mother, more than son or daughter, we then learn to love our father and mother, our son and daughter more than we ever did before. It is only by loving and serving Jesus with all our heart that we become capable of fully loving and serving members of our family and others. Also, please be reminded that when we carry what seems to be a cross…if we do it for Jesus, it will one day be turned into a crown.
