Daily reflect: Friday: October 30/15


Gospel Luke 14:1... a Pharisee invited Jesus to dinner and they were watching to trap him. It was the Sabbath and the watch to see if he would heal a sick man on Sabbath and break the Sabbath rest. Jesus asked the lawyers, ”is it lawful to cure people on the Sabbath or not? ”Jesus tells them that the child or a ox fell into a well on the Sabbath, what would you do? He said, that you would pull it out immediately and save its life. In Another Pl., Jesus told them that the Sabbath was made for humans not humans for those Sabbath.. Jesus made it very clear that compassion always trumped obedience to a rule. Jesus lived a compassionate life and always put people first and taught his disciples to do the same.


Reflection: do you live in a world which puts compassion first and people first?


Prayer: Jesus, both by word and example you because always to put compassion first and  put people first and I pray that by the grace of God I will be able to follow your example. Amen
