    This morning i was reading in matthew 12, where Jesus and some of the disciples are walking around on the sabbath and they get hungry so they start picking some of the wheat and eat it. Then the pharisees see them and start saying how they are disobeying the sabbath day and 'harvesting' when they shouldn't be...and then they get mad at Jesus for healing someone on the sabbath as well, because you aren't supposed to be doing any 'work'.

    And it got me thinking....

    Who would i have been back then? Would i have been one of those pharisees, missing the total point of the sabbath? Would i have gotten mad at them for 'disobeying' the rule, just for the sake of keeping a rule?

    I just don't know. I mean, i HOPE i wouldn't be like that...but what does this story translate to in modern day life? Then i am not so sure. Interesting to think about...
