A Daily Devotion for Friday, February 26


Luke 13: 10-17


verse: The Lord answered him, ”You hypocrites! Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?”


Jesus points out the obvious to one who would criticize him for “working” on the Sabbath. Here these people had witnessed a miracle which could not be denied, and they find something to criticize Jesus about. It is laughable, really. The intent on their part is not to follow the law, but to put down Jesus. Maybe the same could be said to those (sometimes me?) who find discrepancies in scripture and get hung up on them, instead of focusing on the big, obvious picture?

Lord, help me to see and appreciate all that you do, every day, all the time. Your miracles are all around me. Your healing goes on, seen and unseen. I am so thankful, Amen

2021-0226 Friday, Daily Devotion - Luke 13:10-17


People who criticize others rarely don’t look inside themselves. If they think they had the same experience or know they would have the same mistake one day, they won’t criticize others rather sympathize or encourage them for getting better next time. Those who are criticizing others as if they never experience the same or similar might not recognize they are also same sinners before God. So we need to remember that all of us might have a high risk of arrogant situations when we are about to criticize someone’s fault or mistake.


Lord, thank you for turning my eyes on myself to be able to be humble. Keep me in Your Spirit so…

Luke 13: 10-17


12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.”


Jesus calls to every one of us in a similar manner. He wants to set us free of our sins. All we need to do is believe and have the faith in God that all things are possible. I know Jesus is there calling to me and I will follow him. He heals my soul with his love and brings me hope to face life’s challenges.


Dearest Lord I hear you calling to me. You are always there for me and I thank you for that. I only have to ask for your help and you…

Luke 13:10-17 When Jesus saw the woman, he called her to him and told her she was free from her paralyzed and bent body. He laid his hand on her and immediately she stood up straight and began thanking God. You would think that everyone present would also start thanking and praising God for what had happened to the poor woman. But no. The chief of the synagogue was expressing his anger that the healing had taken place on the sabbath. There are six working days on which to be cured; the sabbath is not one of them he said. All the synagogue ruler could see was the rules of the Sabbath. He could not marvel at the healing po…
