Hebrews 6:10-20; Psalm 111; Mark 2:23-28

To know what is right

It is a cold law that would make men and women suffer needlessly, unjustly. Not everything that is illegal is immoral. And not everything that is immoral is illegal. This basic distinction between legality and morality is part of our understanding of the world. And the true disciple of Christ must know when he or she is called upon to break the law in order to do what is right and just before God. To be able to discern such moments and act with integrity we must be filled with the wisdom of Christ himself. Let us pray for his wisdom.
