Reprimanding Jesus

While Jesus was speaking,
a woman from the crowd called out and said to him,
"Blessed is the womb that carried you
and the breasts at which you nursed."
He replied, "Rather, blessed are those
who hear the word of God and observe it." - Luke 11:27-28

Dear Lord,  I have issues with this.  Did you just "dis" your Mother?  I get that I am blessed by paying attention to Your Word and implementing it into my life, but you wouldn't be here if your Mother hadn't said, "Yes."  Do you honestly think anyone else would have agreed to that?

I guess, as a mother, I'm a little sensitive.  And when it comes to YOUR mother, I'm very sensitive.  She has done so much for me and I can't seem to abide by even the slightest critique of her, even from You.

But I understand that You want the focus to be on Your teachings, so I'll let you slide.

Your loving sister.
