Readings for Sunday June 3, 2018

Readings for this Sunday
First Reading: Deuteronomy 5:12-15
Second Reading: 2 Corinthians 4:5-12
Gospel: Mark 2:23–3:6
(New feature: Click the verse to read it now.)

Deuteronomy makes clear that sabbath-keeping is meant for the welfare of all. God delivered the Israelites out of slavery, so they should not ever work anyone else seven days a week. Even slaves should be able to rest; even resident aliens. Yet human beings can turn even the most liberating religious practice into a life-destroying rule. Jesus does not reject sabbath-keeping, but defends its original life-enhancing meaning. Our worship and our religious way of life are to lead to the hungry being fed and the sick being healed.
