He healed on the Sabbath

He healed on the Sabbath

Today’s guest blogger is my 14-year-old daughter, Sophie. Her name literally means “wisdom.” I think she is aptly named.

As I was thinking of what I would include in my talk I thought about what Jesus did on the sabbath day. I was looking at scriptures when I came across Luke 13: 10-17. It says,

“10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. 11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. 12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. 13 And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. 14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. 15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? 16 And ought not this woman being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? 17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.”

God isn’t giving us strict confining rules, and do’s and don’ts but instead showing us and giving us guidelines on how to find happiness and peace.

 I love that story; it reminds us that no matter the day any act of kindness and service can be done. As I have been reading my scriptures I realize that God isn’t giving us strict confining rules, and do’s and don’ts but instead showing us and giving us guidelines on how to find happiness and peace.

He constantly was helping people, comforting many, healing the sick, casting out devils, and much more. The sabbath day is a day to remember and act on Jesus’s example. It is a day where we can find peace and comfort, by, serving, loving, accepting, and understanding those around us.

“Preach the gospel at all times and if necessary, use words.”

St. Francis of Assisi

For example, there was a day that I noticed a girl that was struggling. After church I decided to make some chocolate chip cookies for her. When I delivered them, I saw the joy light up on her face. I immediately felt happy and closer to my Heavenly Father.

It doesn’t matter how big or small your act of kindness is. Simple things like cleaning dishes, writing a note, and listening to someone will bring you closer to your Heavenly Father and you will feel peace and happiness.

St. Francis of Assisi said, “Preach the gospel at all times and if necessary, use words.” By acting on God’s example, we will find our Identity and purpose, and our faith will grow as well as our hearts and spirits. And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
