The Gospel lesson stresses the cost of disci- pleship. One of the costs involves family, but the implication is that there are compensations as well as costs. Belonging to God affects the way in which one belongs to others. Traditional pat- terns, kinship and otherwise, are transformed.

Both Jeremiah 18 and Psalm 139 af rm our belongingness to God, individually and corporately.
