Wait to hear what Bill Gates said about this Sabbath-observant Jew

It is well known that the seven day work week is rooted on the Jewish tradition, and resting on one day a week. Jews mark the Sabbath, and refrain from work then. In fact, Sabbath represents a sign between the Jewish people and God that God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. And so, resting on the Sabbath represents acknowledgement of this sign. But what if one were to lose money by not working on the sabbath? That’s a tough call for the person, but he must remember the importance of the day, and contemplate what he has to gain and what he has to lose, and remember that God is infinitely above a mortal supervisor. That’s not to say that it’s a difficult call to make. Take this video, for example. This Orthodox Jewish man was asked to work during Shabbat, by giving a presentation. However, it wasn’t just for anyone. It was for Bill Gates. Can you imagine someone turning down Bill Gates? Well, Bill Gates’ reaction is something that you’ll remember for a long time. Because it isn’t every day that someone turns him down.
