Work Zone–Construction Zone

Jesus responded to the Jews who were persecuting him for healing on the Sabbath, "My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working." What impressed me was that Jesus did not go and use his power of his own will. He worked as he saw his Father work. There was constant two-way communication between them. Maybe if I emulated Jesus in that way, I would be more like him and the Father. I wonder if then persecution would be more of a reality in my life?

Father, help me see what you see and do what you do.
