One Heart At A Time

Mark 3:4 MSG “What kind of action suits the Sabbath best? Doing good or doing evil? Helping people or leaving them helpless?” No one said a word.

Jesus is talking to a group of people with the Pharisees. Jesus knew the Pharisees were wanting really bad to catch Jesus do work on the Sabbath Day.

So Jesus gave them what they wanted. He was furious at their lack of love but their love of law. He healed a man’s hand on the Sabbath…not to prove a point, not to rebel against their law but to keep a man from being helpless…to heal and not harm.

Our lives are meant to be lived with love, being moved with compassion. If we find a need we should meet it. We’re not here to make the world a better place but we’re here to make someone’s world better. It’s the person we’re concerned about.
