EPHESIANS 4:32--5:8
Be generous to one another, sympathetic, forgiving each other as
readily as God forgave you in Christ. As God's dear children, then,
take him as your pattern, and follow Christ by loving as he loved you,
giving himself up for us as an offering and a sweet-smelling sacrifice
to God. Among you there must be not even a mention of sexual vice or
impurity in any of its forms, or greed: this would scarcely become the
holy people of God! There must be no foul or salacious talk or coarse
jokes -- all this is wrong for you; there should rather be
thanksgiving. For you can be quite certain that nobody who indulges in
sexual immorality or impurity or greed -- which is worshipping a false
god -- can inherit the kingdom of God. Do not let anyone deceive you
with empty arguments: it is such behaviour that draws down God's
retribution on those who rebel against him. Make sure that you do not
throw in your lot with them. You were darkness once, but now you are
light in the Lord; behave as children of light,

LUKE 13:10-17
One Sabbath day he was teaching in one of the synagogues, and there
before him was a woman who for eighteen years had been possessed by a
spirit that crippled her; she was bent double and quite unable to
stand upright. When Jesus saw her he called her over and said, 'Woman,
you are freed from your disability,' and he laid his hands on her. And
at once she straightened up, and she glorified God. But the president
of the synagogue was indignant because Jesus had healed on the
Sabbath, and he addressed all those present saying, 'There are six
days when work is to be done. Come and be healed on one of those days
and not on the Sabbath.' But the Lord answered him and said,
'Hypocrites! Is there one of you who does not untie his ox or his
donkey from the manger on the Sabbath and take it out for watering?
And this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan has held bound these
eighteen years -- was it not right to untie this bond on the Sabbath
day?' When he said this, all his adversaries were covered with
confusion, and all the people were overjoyed at all the wonders he

The Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath. Creation and
all the splendor of nature was effected for the use of man. Man is the
apple of the eye of God. This is how much God loves us. He has created
all things to share His infinite joy with man. And yet many times, we
take for granted all the gifts the Lord has provided for us. Instead
man puts up law after law which burdens many people.

And sometimes the laws and regulations are so perverted that it
stifles the reason God created us. We become subject to slavery to
money, to vices, to passions and to greed. We become crippled when we
lose sight of our Creator and His plan to share Heaven with us. That
is why only Jesus Christ has the power to free us from our disability
and inability. God offers us freedom and eternal life. Let us welcome
His love for us!
