St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

March 5

"Is it against the law to cure on the Sabbath?" (Luke 14: 3)

In this incident Jesus deliberately violates Jewish rules about the Sabbath by healing a sick man. He challenges a religion hedged about by rules and rituals. The Kingdom of God points us to something greater than our own religious structures. We are to be on our guard against a rule-based approach to people and situations.

Lord, help us to look beyond petty rules and embrace your mission to the whole world. Give us courage to play our part in bringing freedom and justice to those in need. Amen.
