The man with a withered hand is healed on the Sabbath. Jesus sets his need above all else. In contrast, the Scribes and Pharisees seek to make the ill man into a pawn in their scheme to trap Jesus.

People first – always. A disciple of Jesus can never use another person to serve their own ends.

Dear Jesus, help me to see the neediest with great clarity. May I be willing to place the poor firs in my life.
