Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy: “We support biblical families.”

Today’s Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day: Blessedness (Luke 11:27-28).

While he was saying this, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you and the breasts that nursed you!”

But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it!”

    At the time, this would have been amazingly liberal, with you own personal actions being held more important than who you were  related to.

    I think the point that Fred is trying to make with this is that here we have a counter-argument for those who say that the greatest thing a woman can do is be a mother. After all, Jesus isn’t saying, “Actually, my mom is definitely unblessed.” He’s pushing attention off himself, (after all, the woman in the crowd is basically saying that Mary is awesome because she bore Jesus, not for anything else) and onto our fellow humans.
