8th September 2012 Luke 6:1-5
One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and his disciples began to pick some heads of grain, rub them in their hands and eat the kernels. Some of the Pharisees asked, “Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?” Jesus answered them, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? He entered the house of God, and taking the consecrated bread, he ate what is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.” Then Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
Jesus is really railing at the Pharisees now, he is telling them where they are wrong and he is challenging all that they hold as truth. Jesus is brave, he does not fear what repurcussions may come from his words; are we so brave? Do we share what we know to be the truth? Do we give others the opportunity to share in the love we receive and share with Jesus?
