Oxless well but dirty house

And he said to them, “Which of you, having a son or an ox that has fallen into a well on a Sabbath day, will not immediately pull him out?”

Luke 14:5 (English Standard Version)

If Jesus healed on the Sabbath, and said it’s OK to rescue one’s ox (or one’s son), on the Sabbath, does that mean that it was OK for the kids and me to spend a good part of our Sunday afternoon cleaning the house? With Janet returning tomorrow, it seemed like an emergency.

By the way, if you happen to see Janet, please don’t tell her that we allowed the house to get that dirty in the first place.

    hmm, I should think God would be pleased you’re making an effort for Janet.

    Nicely done, and your secret is safe with me.

    I expect tonight will be a night of much rejoicing in your land.
