Some Pharisees asked Jesus why he allowed his disciples to “work” on the Sabbath by letting them pick and eat grain as they walked through a field; such behaviour was apparently against their Laws!
Jesus replied, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath”. (Luke 6:5)
It’s easy to find fault in others; much easier than recognising our own faults!
Lord Jesus, remove my stubborn ways. Guide me towards your endless love. Help me to become more generous and understanding so that, I grow daily in my compassion and respect for your people.
Prayer: Poor – Daily Service
Make us worthy, Lord,
to serve our brothers and sisters throughout the world,
who live and die in poverty and hunger.
Give them, through our hands,
this day their daily bread,
and by our understanding love,
give them peace and joy.
Make us, Lord,
worthy to serve our brothers and sisters,
scattered all over the world,
who live and die alone and poor.
Give them today, using our hands, their daily bread.
And, using our love, give them peace and happiness. Amen.
