Lk 6:1-5

The Pharisees interpret the law in a way that distorts the will of God. Harvesting the grain on the Sabbath is considered work which is unlawful. The disciples aren’t working, they are hungry and grabbing what is readily available to eat on their journey. Jesus uses an incident from Scripture to defend the disciples and reminds the Pharisees who he is.

Your way is the only way because it is the truth and leads those who follow to eternal life.
