Jesus teaches on the Sabbath about the Sabbath. By exercising His divine authority, Jesus shows us that God never rests from love.

It is easy to let regulations and rules become restrictions rather than pointers to the truth of love. All rules are means to a further end; the fullness of God’s love, which is for everyone.

O Holy Spirit, inspire me to respond freely to love by loving without limit or boundary. May I always be oriented to inclusion.
