THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 11 - Verse 27

Verses 27,28. A certain woman. One of the crowd.

Verse 27. Blessed is the womb, &c. She thought that the mother of such a person must be peculiarly happy in having such a son.

Yea, rather blessed, c. Jesus admits that she was happy — it was an honour to be his mother, but he say that the chief happiness, the highest honour, was to obey the word of God. Compared with this, all earthly distinctions and honours are as nothing. Man's greatest dignity is in keeping the holy commandments of God, and in being prepared for heaven. See Barnes "Lu 10:20".
