Barnabas, Apostle – Friday, June 11, 2021
Barnabas was not numbered among the twelve apostles, but the book of Acts gives him that title. After Paul was converted to Christianity, Barnabas welcomed him to Jerusalem, and later the two traveled together on missionary journeys.
And looking at those who sat around him, [Jesus] said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.’ – Mark 3:34-35
When God gives us opportunities to forge new relationships, whether within and outside of our church and family circles, take the time to cultivate and tend them. We can take the cue from Jesus, who was always expanding his circle of friends and family.
