Luke: [Healing on the Sabbath, again] As I read this account I have to wonder where all this insecurity comes from. Of what are these people afraid? Why would someone be indignant about a good, gracious, and generous gift being granted to a woman crippled for 18 years? Especially on the Sabbath? The sovereignty of God allows Him to bend or even ignore (break?) His own rules for His own purpose (see Psalm 115:3) This is the true danger of legalism: not to be able to see the forest for the trees.
