Should I attend a wedding, funeral, bridal or baby shower on the Sabbath?
The Sabbath is a day when we are to avoid not only work, but also the pursuit of our own words and pleasures (Isa. 58:13). It is a day to focus entirely on Yahweh, which is not possible when one is busy focusing on those in a wedding, funeral, or shower. In specific regard to a funeral superseding a day of worship, Yahshua said, "Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead," Matthew 8:22. Yahweh’s days of worship, including His annual Sabbaths (Lev. 23), should always come before our pleasures or personal commitments.
