Oct. 30, 2015 (Luke 14:1-6)

“Is it lawful to cure on the Sabbath or not?” Jesus kept getting into trouble by doing things that were technically wrong (curing was thought to be work and shouldn’t be done on the Sabbath). He always acted to show God’s compassion and mercy in any and all circumstances. This kept getting Him in trouble with the authorities. He is saying that caring for people is more important than mere compliance to rules and regulations. Being compassionate is more important than being legally right.
