The Pharisees were focused on the fine print. Watch the video devotion here. The purpose of the Sabbath was to keep your focus on your Savior God. The Pharisees focused on rule keeping. One of the reasons we read God's word every day is to keep our focus on Jesus. Enjoy reading Luke 6:1-19 here.
The Old Testament reading (1 Chronicles 9 - 10) illustrates the importance of keeping the main thing the main thing. After completing the genealogical overview of history in chapter 9, the Chronicler reviewed the sad end of King Saul. "Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD." May the Holy Spirit use our daily Bible reading to keep us faithful to our Savior God.
