Christ, the Splitter of Families

This past Sunday was Fathers’ Day in the United States. This is a day we set aside to recognize the important role that dads play in our lives. But, on this day of all days, we read this from the Gospel, “He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me.” Yet, at the same time, the Bible also tells us to, “Honor our father and mother.” Is Jesus opposing Moses? Did Jesus really mean what he said? Today, on The Way, we look at how the gospel message disrupts our lives and forces us to make some tough choices. We’ll also take a look at how that choice might just disrupt our family lives!
