eating grain

As I was walking through these wheat fields with my nephews we remembered how one weekend many years ago Jesus walked through grain fields with his disciples and they picked heads of grain to eat. We did the same but wondered if we might be breaking the law – way back then there were all kinds of provisions that allowed hungry travelers to pick and eat – but I don’t suppose those apply to us today. So we did not eat too much – just a little to help imagine that history.
