Have You Read the Bible?

Jesus and His disciples went through a grainfield on the Sabbath and the disciples plucked the grain and ate it. The Pharisees tattled to Jesus for what the disciples did, but listen to what He said to the tattletales, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him…” (Matthew 12:3).
Jesus often solved controversies that way, asking whether the critics had simply read what the Bible says. Nothing complicated was involved. There were no hidden meanings in the original Hebrew that only the most learned scholars could discover.
No, a simple reading of the Bible would have solved this controversy. Friends, keep reading and meditating in the Scriptures daily. As you do so, you are acquiring the wisdom of the Holy Spirit.
