Cure on the Sabbath

John 5:1-16

On the Sabbath, Jesus goes to the pool called Bethesda where healings are known to take place. He encounters one man who has been ill for a very long time. The man wants to get into the pool to be healed but cannot. By his word, Jesus restores the man to health. Those who witness and question the man after the fact are more focused on the breaking of the Sabbath laws than the miraculous healing.

Prayer: Help us to be less scrupulous and to see the good in all people. Remove from us the tendency to judge others without knowing what is in their hearts.
