14 But the synagogue official, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, began saying to the crowd in response, “There are six days in which work should be done; so come during them and get healed, and not on the Sabbath day.” – Luke 13:14
Whenever I read this, I am struck by just how legalistic and heartless this official was. It makes me wonder how anyone can be so merciless?
But then I remember, oh wait… that’s me. That’s so often my own self-righteous attitude. I’m just a lot better than the synagogue official at hiding it.
