How Soon We Forget…

Luke 6:3-4 Jesus answered them, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? [4] He entered the house of God, and taking the consecrated bread, he ate what is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.”
In combating their accusations, Jesus made reference to the actions of David. In 1 Samuel 21:5-6, David’s visit to the synagogue in Nob took place on the Sabbath. A fresh supply of consecrated bread was just laid out, and David requested the bread for nourishment. It was, after a brief conversation, given to David to eat and share with his companions. Jesus was simply pointing out that their beloved David violated the law of the Sabbath by consuming the concentrated bread. This would have made the Pharisees angry. They would have understood exactly what Jesus was doing, how He was answering them, but Jesus was correct in what He shared. Why is something perfectly fine for one person, but a serious violation for another? We have a tendency to view things through the same eyes. When it comes to ourselves, it’s fine; but as others walk the same line, it’s a travesty the way they are going. How soon we forget that everyone, everyone, is saved and sanctified by the same blood.
Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see that everyone makes mistakes, myself included.
