Jesus went into the synagogue again and noticed a man with a deformed {right} hand. Since it was the Sabbath, Jesus’ enemies watched him closely. If he healed the man’s hand, they planned to accuse him of working on the Sabbath. Jesus said to the man with the deformed hand, “Come and stand in front of everyone.”  Then he turned to his critics and asked, “Does the law permit good deeds on the Sabbath, or is it a day for doing evil? Is this a day to save life or to destroy it?” But they wouldn’t answer him. He looked around at them angrily and was deeply saddened by their hard hearts. Then he said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” So the man held out his hand, and it was restored!  At once the Pharisees went away and met with the supporters of Herod to plot how to kill Jesus.

Mark 3:1-6; Luke 6:6-11

Jesus noticed the man before the man noticed him.

Jesus knew the religious leaders would accuse him of breaking the law.

Jesus acted without regard for his own well-being.

I want to be more like Jesus.

May your Saturday be filled with blessing and rest. May your spirit be renewed and your heart made glad in His presence.
