“How much more valuable is a human being than a sheep! So it is lawful to do good on the sabbath.” Matthew 12:12
Every human being on planet earth is precious to God. We are His handiwork and He cares so much about us, about our well-being and about our souls.
And because of His love for us, He gave us His precious Son who came and put so many things in order.
Jesus Christ was about to cure a man with a Withered Hand who was at the Synagogue, and the Pharisees who loved to tempt Jesus with their worthless questions, came to ask Him (Jesus) if it is lawful to cure on sabbath.
Knowing how tricky they were, Jesus answered then in Matthew 12:12 (read the above verse).
So many people have lost their priorities, I mean their spiritual priorities, when it comes to defining what Sunday is all about. It is true that people go to churches on Sundays but does it mean that God specifically instructed this?
The bible says in the book of Genesis that after the works of creation, God rested on the seventh day. The seventh day does not necessarily have to be Sunday. It may be any other day.
To worship God is not restricted to Sunday or to church services. To worship God with complete sincerity must be from the heart.
Worshipping God is not enough when you don’t prove the presence of God in your heart, which is by doing good to others.
Sabbath or no sabbath, Sunday or no Sunday, church or no church, none of these must be your utter most priorities unless you are able to successfully blend them in with what God expected of you.
Don’t be subjected to misplaced priorities. Be good to others. Make out your profound joy in helping others. Value the human life with respect and above all, let Christ be in charge of your life.
