Luke 14:1-11 Total Healing

A sick man needed healing, but healing was “work” and Jewish law strictly forbade any work to be done on the Sabbath.  If a man will rescue his animal at any time, how much more will God rescue his people at any and every moment!  Those who have been rescued, however, know that this is not because they in any sense “deserve” it: we have no cause for pride, and we are not to seek for status or position in the eyes of men.  It is the humble who will enter the Kingdom of God.
