Jesus taught this principle when He healed on the Sabbath day and told the parable of the good Samaritan. 

Our lord made it clear that to neglect to do a good deed for another in need, even if we had a religious excuse for not doing it, was to do evil. Let’s be a people known for doing good deeds and sharing kindness. Let’s not let any excuse, especially a religious excuse interfere with out glorious and holy opportunities to serve others in the name of Jesus.
