Do We Prohibit Others From Doing Good Works?

The lawyers and Pharisees believed that it was not lawful to heal on the Sabbath, yet, Jesus asked them, “Which of you, having a donkey or an ox that has fallen into a pit, will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day?” (Luke 14:5).
Of course, they would save that animal on the Sabbath day! Yet, which is greater an animal life or a human life? If we can do works for an animal at anytime, certainly we can do good works for humans at anytime!
Therefore, if we see someone doing a good work, let us not prohibit it, but encourage it.
