In Matthew 12:1-8, Jesus and the disciples were walking through a corn field. They were hungry and plucked some ears and began to eat. Pharisees traveling with them began to complain to Jesus. It was against the law. Jesus responded, didn’t you read what King David did. He entered the temple and ate the show bread. It wasn’t lawful for him to do this. But he needed food and God provided. Jesus said, do you know what this means, I will have mercy and not sacrifice. For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day. God doesn’t condone sin. But God has mercy on those who seek him. David entered into the temple into the Holy of holies in the presence of God and God provided his need. So we are to enter into God’s presence and will receive His mercy. Because mercy triumphs over judgement.
