Psalms: 2, 4


Luke: Jesus went to the house of a prominent Pharisee and there also was a man suffering from dropsy. I had always thought dropsy meant one was unusually clumsy. It does not. It is a medical condition of excessive edema or swelling caused by the body retaining fluids. It can make movement very difficult. Of course, it is a Sabbath and what better place to perform a work of mercy than in a Pharisee’s house. Why is keeping the Law is more important than improving a man’s life?

Gospel: Luke 14:1-11

New Testament: Revelation 18:1-14

Old Testament: Genesis 11:1-13
