healing on the sabbath

On the day you least expect it,
God will break into your religious routines and heal your heart.

Always healing on the Sabbath.
As if to make a point with his life.
I stand opposed to your practices.
Outside of your confines people are touched by God’s hands in real time.

Comparing us to oxen or camels or sheep,
we are untied and led to water.

When was the last time you had a drink?
Cold and wet and real God,
not ceremony and rules tied on?

“He heals on the Sabbath!”

This was not a boast or amazement with gladness.
This was the accusation.

“He heals on the Sabbath!”
