When Jesus healed a woman who had been sick 18 years, the leader of the synagogue (the Senior Pastor), was angry because of the breaking of sabbath rules. In that case, rules were more important than people.
Jesus demonstrates to us a different way of valuing individuals.
I hope we all keep looking to Jesus as our standard of care. While rules can be necessary, a useful one enhances the common good without restricting human flourishment.
The Kingdom of God is a renewing reality.
The Kingdom of God is about renewing people!
