Seems like a no brainer right? Don't work on the Sabbath means don't work, but you don't know what you will do until you are in a situation that forces you to do so. I was never the best Sabbath keeper. Sometimes I would go to church, sometimes I wouldn't, and sometimes I would do my own thing like it was just another day of the week.
