Jesus was walking through some wheat fields on the Sabbath. ( Saturday, The Jewish Day
Of Rest ) His disciples felt hungry, so they began to pick the heads of wheat,
rub them in their hands, and eat the grain.
There were some Pharisees who were watching this and they said to Jesus, "Why are your disciples doing what our Law says you cannot do on the Sabbath?"
Jesus answered them, "Haven't you read what David did when he and his men were hungry? He went into the house of God, took the bread offered to God, ate it, and gave it to his men to eat. Yet it is against our Law for anyone except the priest to eat that bread."
AUTHOR'S NOTE: This happened when David was fleeing from King Saul who wanted to kill him out of jealousy and the reading can be found in the Old Testament Book.....1st Samuel, Chapter 21, Verses 1-6.
Jesus continued, "Or have you not read in the Law of Moses that every Sabbath the priest in the Temple actually break the Sabbath law, yet they are not guilty?"
AUTHOR'S NOTE: Jesus refers to the Old Testament Law found in the Book of Numbers, Chapter 28, Verses 9-10. The priests were not preparing the lambs for sacrifice the way it was prescribed in the Law.
Jesus continued, "I tell you that there is something here greater than the Temple. The scripture says,
'It is mercy that I want,
not animal sacrifices.'
If you really knew what this means, you would not condemn people who are not guilty; for the Son of Man is the Lord of the Sabbath." And Jesus concluded,
"The Sabbath was made
for the good of man;
man was not made
for the Sabbath."

are good for support and prayer like Wisdom, Job, Psalms,
and Proverbs. They take you away from the story.

Have you ever wondered if there is a God? One who is responsible for the creation of the universe and all living things.
These are some of the stories of easy salvation.
No speaking in tongues, no being baptised with water,
just turn away from your sinful life, and believe that GOD The Father
sent his son JESUS to die on a cross and take all YOUR SINS away.
'For GOD loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.'
This is a beautiful prayer at anytime of the day or for those gathered at your table for a meal.
Lord, I have come to you for protection;
never let me be defeated!
Because you are righteous,
help me and rescue me,
Listen to me and save me!
There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers ....
"My children, when you come to serve
the Lord, prepare yourself for trials."
( A reading from “The Wisdom Of Sirach” )
