Shabbat is to DO GOOD...
Updated: Mar 18, 2019
Today is Shabbat. I found another verse about this important day. Matthew 12:12
How much more valuable is a man than a sheep! Therefore, what is permitted on Shabbat is to do good.” (CJB)
Jesus was always questioned about how he handled Shabbat. Pharisees questioned him. Challenged him. Said he shouldn’t heal on Shabbat. Didn’t want him “picking wheat.” They wanted to nail him on every little detail.
In this verse Jesus made it quite clear that Shabbat is about doing GOOD!
Shabbat is not about what you can't do. Shabbat is about what you SHOULD do.
Man is more valuable than a sheep. What is supposed to happen on Shabbat is doing GOOD.
I believe that healing, eating, helping the poor, bringing LIFE to someone is what Shabbat is all about.
Jesus exemplified this well and if His life is truly looked at, one learns about His thoughts about this important day.
Today, take time to DO GOOD. Take time to realize that man is valuable and this is a day when you can CHOOSE to share HIS LOVE with those around you.
