Do you hear the music?

A Yid should go around with a song in his heart for the privilege to serve Hashem.

Bill’s Woes

May 29, 2013

Bill is a happy-go-lucky fellow, he is usually full of laughter and jokes which he enjoys sharing with his coworkers. Most of his coworkers appreciate the humor he adds to the work environment. However, a recent addition to the captive audience did not like the off-color jokes. As this particular fellow davened to Hashem to be saved from hearing offensive content; Bill’s life took a definitive turn for the worse. The afflictions which befall Bill in the last month include: Oral Surgery, car problems, infection due to the oral surgery, marital strife, pressure at work from the company’s president and a foot injury. Bill is too busy to think about jokes and the environment has become totally clean. Thank You Hashem for always hearing our prayers and taking care of all our needs.

People are powerless

Don’t take people too seriously, they are only creations and are controlled by Hashem. They have no power at all to help you or harm you.

Prerequisite for Torah

Emuna is the prerequisite to receiving the Torah as the Midrash states: “The Torah could be given only to eaters of manna.”

Do not supervise Hashem

May 10, 2013

Emuna teaches us Hashem provides all our material needs and our responsibility is only to serve Hashem. As we go about our lives many times we turn around to check how Hashem is providing us. It is not befitting for us to review the King and Master of the World. We should concentrate on our task which is to serve Hashem.
