PEDOMETER OF LOVE
One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. The Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?” He answered, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.” Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So, the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”
MARK 2, 23-28 (NIV)
The excerpt from the second chapter of the Gospel of Mark is a story that at first glance may seem merely a discussion about the Sabbath. But if we look closer, we discover that Jesus has more to convey to us. Something that concerns the essence of our faith and the way we live our daily affairs.
