Is It Lawful to Do Good (Luke 6)

with Ron Deal | December 3, 2018

In Luke 6 Jesus heals a man's hand on the Sabbath. Now over the years the Pharisees had created an exhaustive list of rules to define how much "work" you could do on the Sabbath. Jesus broke the rules. Essentially, they valued the list more than doing good for others and we can do the same thing. Our rules dictate appropriate dress at church, what Bible version you use, and who we let serve. We serve the rules rather than people. Let's be like Christ. Like he said, it's always lawful to do good.
