Many years ago, a manager approached me while I was saying ‘Asher Yoztar’. Being that I was blessing Hashem I ignored the manager and he got angry. I decided then to put the phone to my ear while saying ‘Asher Yoztar’ so people would realize not to interrupt.

Fast forward to the today’s age, I was saying ‘Asher Yoztar’ without a phone in sight and my manager walked over, when he saw me talking he said ‘Sorry, I didn’t realize you’re on the phone!’


What’s better?

אָרוּר הַגֶּבֶר אֲשֶׁר יִבְטַח בָּאָדָם וְשָׂם בָּשָׂר זְרֹעוֹ
בָּרוּךְ הַגֶּבֶר אֲשֶׁר יִבְטַח בָּה’ וְהָיָה ה’ מִבְטַחו

When a person feels financially secure he puts his trust in physical entities. On the other hand, someone who does not feel financially secure puts his trust only in Hashem.
