verses 11-12: He said to them, “If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable is a man than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”
These verses remind me there is no reason to hold back from doing the right thing. Being kind, showing mercy, being generous and giving, all of these actions are the right actions, all of the time. This passage is especially convicting for me today. My own feelings do get in my way and prevent me from being kind at times. If I am really going to be a servant, others’ needs must come before my own.
Father God, you teach me every day. I am so grateful for your Word, and your Spirit guiding me. Amen
