The Gospel goes on to remind us that children are not the property of a family, but they have their own lives to lead. Jesus is a model of obedience to his earthly parents, placing himself under their charge (cf.Lk2:51), but he also shows that children’s life decisions and their Christian vocation may demand a parting for the sake of the Kingdom of God (cf. Mt 10:34-37; Lk 9:59-62). Jesus himself, at twelve years of age tells Mary and Joseph that he has a greater mission to accomplish apart from his earthly family (cf. Lk 2:48-50). In this way, he shows the need for other, deeper bonds even within the family: “ My mother and my brethren are those who hear the word of God and do it.” (Lk 8:21)
