Luke 13:10-13 NRSVue
10Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11And just then there appeared a woman with a spirit that had crippled her for eighteen years. She was bent over and was quite unable to stand up straight. 12When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said, “Woman, you are set free from your ailment.” 13When he laid his hands on her, immediately she stood up straight and began praising God.

Some thoughts on this scripture
How often, Lord, you faced the tension between human needs and the law's demands. And how consistently you moved to lift the misery of the individual person. Save me from ever loving systems more than humans.
