Daily Word Of God

Luke 6:1-5

One Sabbath Jesus was walking through the cornfields, and his disciples were picking ears of corn, rubbing them in their hands and eating them.  Some of the Pharisees said, ‘Why are you doing something that is forbidden on the Sabbath day?’

Jesus answered them, ‘So you have not read what David did when he and his followers were hungry-  how he went into the house of God and took the loaves of the offering and ate them and gave them to his followers, loaves which the priests alone are allowed to eat?’

        And he said to them, ‘The Son of man is master of the Sabbath.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

  • The Laws of Christ are to free us and lead us to a deeper meaning of how we ought to live our lives and to love God more fully.


  • These Laws help us to appreciate more fully the divine Wisdom guiding us in our lives.


  • Ponder on the deeper meaning of some of the “Laws of God and the Church” which do you find more difficult to follow? Do you find that they are God’s guiding Wisdom for us?
