Gospel: Luke 6:1-5
One Sabbath Jesus was going through a field of grain, and his disciples began to
pick heads of grain, crushing them in their hands for food. Some of the Pharisees
asked them,“Why do you do what is forbidden on the Sabbath?”

Then Jesusspoke up and asked them, “Have you never read what David did when he and his
men were hungry? He entered the house of God, took and ate the bread of the offering, and
even gave some to his men, though only priests are allowed to eat that bread.” And Jesus added,
“The Son of Man is Lord and rules over the Sabbath.”


I once read an anecdote about a family. It was the time Dr. Benjamin Spoke’s book Baby and Child
Care was the ultimate word on child care. Like many mothers of that time, this firsttime mother in the
story also had her copy of the book. One day, her new-born baby was crying relentlessly. The baby
had slept well and was fed well on waking. Why does it cry again? The mother turned to the book
to find out. And the baby went on crying. All along, the grandmother was watching the scene. Finally
losing patience, the grandmother shouted at the mother: “For heaven’s sake, drop the book and pick
up the child!” The Pharisees in today’s gospel are like the first-time mother in the story. Their heads
are totally buried in the Law that they fail to look up at the disciples and see their human need. By
focusing on the minutiae, they missed the larger picture.
