Pastor Randal Bruno referred to the Gospel lesson from Luke chapter 13 verses 10-17 for his sermon. Jesus had been teaching in one of the synagogues and there he noticed a woman who was bent over and could not fully straighten herself. Jesus freed her from her disability that Sabbath Day and the rulers of the day scorned Jesus for healing on the Sabbath. The people were more concerned about the law and did not recognize the miracle before them. How sad this must be to God when we live a proper life and fail to live a Godly life. We too have a lesson to learn--How much will we learn from the lesson Jesus addressed that day? Perhaps we need to open our eyes a little wider and thereby see the big picture and recognize miracles in our midst and give glory to God.
