Jesus knew that he was being watched, but he did not hesitate to heal the man. The Pharisees were watching, and they did not congratulate Jesus on his astonishing aid given to this man. They loved their system of rules and regulations more than they loved God. Maybe we at times can hold on to our way of doing things and not be open to other possibilities. Are we so stubborn in our beliefs and our way of doing things that we would rather destroy a relationship than save it?
