One thing to remember is that the sabbath was created for man, not man for the sabbath. When Jesus was on the earth, he often healed the sick and performed miracles on the sabbath; and this infuriated the pharisees and religious hypocrites.
Another time Jesus went into the synagogue, and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath. Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, “Stand up in front of everyone.”
Then Jesus asked them, “Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?” But they remained silent.
He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored. Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus. - Mark 3:1-6
Now, God be praised, that to believing souls gives light in darkness, comfort in despair.- William Shakespeare
