Are we so caught up in the world that our hearts ignore the true purpose we were created for? In Mark 3:1-7, Jesus heals the man with the withered hand, on the Sabbath ! So caught up in the rules the Pharisees were furious, how dare He work on the Sabbath? In verse 4 the question is “ Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to kill ?”. Their hearts so caught up in law that an expression of love further kindled there anger towards Christ. We too at times become so caught up in the rules that we forget our purpose, “ glorify God in all we do”, the most important of the commandments: “ Love God with ALL your heart, all your mind and all your soul” and “Love your neighbor as yourself”. Love, when we approach the world with this vision or focus, the rules fade and God shines.

Just a thought
