Way off tangent

...and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Looking for a reason to bring charges against Jesus, they asked him, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?" (Matthew 12:10 NIV)

Jesus was like, "are you kidding me? can you guys hear yourself right now? What kind of a question is that? Of course it is lawful to do what is good even on a sabbath!"

The pharisees were way off tangent.

Jesus reminded them that there is no rest day from doing what is good

This of course is an impossible task. But so is everything we do apart from God.
Doing what is right all the time even on sabbath is doable
because doing what is right is not what we do, it is who we are. 

Identity determines activity. 
Not the other way around.
