Jesus Turns Our Expectations Upside Down

In verses 23-28, the Pharisees criticize Jesus and his followers for picking grain on the Sabbath.

Isn't it important to follow the law?  Resting on the Sabbath is one of the Ten Commandments, for crying out loud!

But Jesus turns everything around.  The Sabbath was created for our good, not vice versa.

How does this apply today?

It seems that following God's guidelines for our behavior is for our own good, not for His benefit.
