For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you
received a spirit of adoption, through which we cry, "Abba, Father!" ~Romans

But the leader of the synagogue, indignant that Jesus had cured on the
sabbath, said to the crowd in reply, "There are six days when work should be
done. Come on those days to be cured, not on the sabbath day." The Lord said
to him in reply, "Hypocrites! ~Luke 13:10-17

We have a wonderful closeness with God.  And God responds to our needs with
such generosity.  Jesus didn't even shrink from healing on the Sabbath.
Many were ready to criticize, but Jesus called them what they were,
"Hypocrites." May we be close the Lord and respond with love to those who
need our help as Jesus did.

I pray that I may be grateful for the Lord's closeness.  I pray that I may
reach out and help others as Jesus did, whether or not others criticize.
