Today's Verse:

kjv@Matthew:12:4 @ How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?

kjv@Matthew:12:5 @ Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?

kjv@Matthew:12:6 @ But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.

kjv@Matthew:12:7 @ But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

kjv@Matthew:12:13 @ Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

kjv@Matthew:12:14 @ Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.

Today's notes:


What is man believing/doing?:

What is making man to believe/do as he is doing?:


How did the occasion of eating transpire? Did the disciples ask the Master? Did the Master command the disciples? Was this exhibition planned? What were they doing that they couldn't have prepared for it themselves? Did anyone of their hosts offer to prepare a Sabbath meal for them?

Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. It is difficult for us to recognize the slight of hand, the shifting of balance, the perception of priority. We resort to the familiar with its faults and all. We comfortably stand behind those seeking to destroy more often than those that seek to liberate.
