Make It a Habit—Part 3
As a new year begins, we view it as the perfect opportunity to implement new habits in our lives. We make resolutions related to health, relationships, and finances to better ourselves. But what would happen if we focused on our spiritual health first? This series will place an emphasis on the important habits we need to embrace that will help us stay grounded, find hope and comfort, and grow spiritually. Make it a Habit will help us discover refreshing ways to experience life in a more positive way.

Problem | We don’t realize how important others are to our spiritual health
Takeaway | We are family
Jesus’s true family consists of those who respond positively to him rather than those who are physically related to him. The story also suggests that being a part of Jesus’ family may require adjusting or even severing relationships with an earthly family. –J.A. Brooks
The verb translated “to take charge” means to arrest… Evidently they intended to seize Jesus and force him to return to Nazareth with them. –J.A. Brooks
…this is not simply a failure to follow Jesus, but a positive and offensive repudiation. –R.T. France
