Jesus cures a man who has been ill all his life, and He does so on the Sabbath. The law of love supersedes all others. God never rests from mercy, nor should we.

We are called to trust in the constancy of God’s love and mercy. Likewise, others count on us for love and forgiveness every day.

Dear Jesus, help me to experience myself as beloved and forgiven. May I also be generous in sharing what I have received.
