With what words did He justify acts of mercy on the Sabbath day?

Answer

'Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the Sabbath days." Matt. 12:12.
NOTE - Not a little of Christ's earthly ministry was devoted to uplifting the Sabbath, and showing
the beneficent character of the Sabbath institution. It was not meant to be a day of sorrow, austerity, or
gloom. Disinterested works of love and mercy toward man or beast are always in place on the Sabbath.
Lawful means, according to law."
