Jesus heals the withered hand. After making his point (the Sabbath is for doing good), he then does the good.

Talk is one thing. Manageable. But doing is a step too far. The Pharisees left the encounter working on a plan “to destroy him” (Matthew 12:14).

The more you do good, the more the bad reacts.

And a lot of people shy away from doing any kind of meaningful good because of this. As if they are somehow causing the bad.

But they’re not.

That’s just the nature of bad. Like water always finding its lowest level, bad always fights good.

If for nothing else, that’s a reason to keep doing the good.
