In Luke 13, Jesus understands the Sabbath as protecting the needs of a woman so she may stand upright in her community. When we refrain from “getting ahead” seven days a week, we can care for the hungry, the afflicted, and won’t need to speak evil of one another (vv. 9b-10). Then, the people of God will “get ahead” and have real needs satisfied, real bodies strengthened, and real thirst quenched (v. 11). Come and worship with us this weekend!
