Thought For The Day 299

10th March 2021: Rev. Richard Atkinson
Back home  /  News  /  Thought For The Day 299

Richard reflects on what our faith is all about, helped by this passage from Matthew 12:1-8.

Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath
1 At that time Jesus went through the grain fields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of grain and eat them. 2 When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, "Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath." 3 He answered, "Haven't you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? 4 He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread--which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests. 5 Or haven't you read in the Law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are innocent? 6 I tell you that something greater than the temple is here. 7 If you had known what these words mean, 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice, 'you would not have condemned the innocent. 8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.
