Lk 6:6-11

Jesus has told the Pharisees he is the “Lord of the Sabbath”. He goes a step further by acting on those words healing the man’s withered hand. Though Jesus knows he has provoked them he goes on to challenge them by saying that if God gives the Sabbath to his people, shouldn’t they choose to do good no matter what that entails.

Let us pray this day for the conversion for all who have let evil enter their hearts and guide their actions.
