The Posuk notes – “Six days a week you should work”. The Chofetz Chaim noted that a person needs to understand that all your Parnosa comes in 6 days. Working on Shabbos does not increase your profits. On the contrary – if you fail to rest on Shabbos you may even lose your Parnosa the other six days as well. It is only B’zchus of keeping Shabbos that you have Parnosa the rest of the week.
