Mark 2:23-28

When questioned about his disciples picking and eating the grain on their journey, he cites the example of David making a similar exception to the law for hungry people. It is obvious that the Pharisees are desperate to trap Jesus and his followers.

It is difficult to admit that I sometimes see myself in the Pharisees waiting for someone to fail so that I can feel justified is breaking my relationship with my neighbor, with you. Heal my heart.
