I Want to be Like You

La Familia

I long to be
part of your family.
To share the same genes,
the DNA,
the characteristics;
to live your way,
behave as you do,
live as you live.

I want to be like you Lord,
not me,
not my ways,
but the full life you bring.

When you look at me,
I pray you will see
someone living
as you ask,
part of your family.

I pray for your work
in those things
that get in the way of that,
your life,
love,
hope
and peace
living
and growing
in me.

Mark 3:31-35 (CEV)

Jesus’ Mother and Brothers

31 Jesus’ mother and brothers came and stood outside. Then they sent someone with a message for him to come out to them. 32 The crowd that was sitting around Jesus told him, “Your mother and your brothers and sisters are outside and want to see you.”

33 Jesus asked, “Who is my mother and who are my brothers?” 34 Then he looked at the people sitting around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 35 Anyone who obeys God is my brother or sister or mother.”
