daily word - rules?

Which do you think is more important, rules or people? Is it easy to say people? Yet people need rules and structure. If everyone is an exception and a special case the structure falls apart. So there is an inevitable tension between these concepts, and you know people who seem to value one more highly than the other. Rule people have been known as legalists. I encountered these on my own time on earth. I was accused on breaking the law by healing people on the Sabbath. I pointed out that man was not made for the Sabbath, but the Sabbath for man. Honor the rules and follow them, but you are free to examine them and if  they don’t serve the grater needs of humanity set them aside.
