Today we hear about the importance of the Sabbath and the times that Jesus healed on this special day for the Jewish community.
All religions have rules and regulations to follow. Personally, I believe that is the difference between faith and religion. We like things ordered and in strict boundaries or rules. That is what religion is, faith is belief and there are not too many rules and regulations. In our reading today Jesus comes up against the rules and regulations placed on the Jewish people by their religious leaders versus compassion and love for people.
