Money matters

June 28, 2012

The Alter of Kelem writes that people worry about money matters because they have the misconception that they can do anything about it. If a person would internalize that all his income is from Hashem and anything the person does cannot add or subtract anything to it, he will stop worrying. There are many things that are vital to a person and he does not worry about them because they are out of his hands. The only reason people worry about money is because they think that they are in control.

I was sitting at a meeting; it was a long meeting, they went on and on discussing extremely boring issues. Having been up since very early I found myself nodding off. It would certainly not be presentable to fall asleep at a meeting so I tried to keep myself awake with every possible means. I tried writing down what is being said, I tried to participate in the discussion, but to no avail. In desperation, I prayed silently to Hashem to help me in my predicament. A short while later a large fly came into the room and started buzzing around the speaker’s head. The speaker was distracted and tried to shoo way the fly, then a different team member (on his first day in the job) jumped up and started to punch the fly. Eventually the fly was overwhelmed and the team lead jumped on the fly to kill him. By that time I was rolling from laughter and sleep was not an issue anymore. Thank you Hashem.
