Ever noticed that religious people value programs more than people, rules more than relationships?
Jesus addressed this attitude when he rebuked the Pharisees and their
religious system for allowing people to help a donkey on the Sabbath,
but not allowing them to help hurting people on the Sabbath. (Luke 14:14-16)
Why did Pharisees value donkeys more than people?
Why do we act like our religious programs, rules and traditions are more important than people?
Since Jesus died for people, not for donkeys – maybe we should value people more than religious traditions, programs and rules.
