DG BookGospel: Mark 2:23-28
One Sabbath he was walking through grain fields. As his disciples walked along with him, they began to pick the heads of
grain and crush them in their hands. Then the Pharisees said to Jesus, “Look! They are doing what is forbidden on the Sabbath!”
And he said to them, “Have you never read what David did in his time of need; when he and his men were very hungry?

He went into the House of God, when Abiathar was High Priest, and ate; the bread of offering, which only the priests are allowed to
eat, and he also gave some to the men who were with him.” Then Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the
Sabbath. So the Son of Man is master even of the Sabbath.”

 

Reflection:

 

Neuropsychology will tell you that one of the key ingredients
for depth perception (perception of reality before us in its three
dimensions and distance) is the capacity for binocular vision, the
ability to see with both the eyes. The Pharisees in today’s story
have only monocular vision in the spiritual sense—a flat (and
lifeless) vision of people around, which sees only their external
actions in terms of law. Thus, they can only see the disciples
breaking the Sabbath law. However, Jesus has binocular
vision and more—he sees the actions, the needs, the
intentions, and much more. His depth perception reaches
into the innermost chambers of human hearts. The same unfolds
in the story of selection of David: God sees in him much more than
Samuel could see. It is good to examine periodically how good
our spiritual depth perception is.
