Fast Day 5

Monday, 22nd February

Reading John 5: 1-18

At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. The day on which this took place was a Sabbath.

John 5:9, NIV

I wonder what you did yesterday?

The religious rulers got doubly upset on the Sabbath because first they discovered the man was carrying his mat (considered work) and then that Jesus had brought healing. Do we sometimes misunderstand what God is doing, do we get upset at something that we shouldn’t, do we actually frustrate God at the same time we try to bring honour? Let us seek God’s peace in our heart, and God’s way in our lives.
