Reward for Mitzvah, why it doesn’t happen.

-This means, as a general rule it will happen, however there are exceptions.

-The systems of reward and judgment are very complex, there are many different factors.

-If everything is in place it will happen, this is normally the case.

-There are also many levels in doing something, this includes effort and how a person does a deed.

-Do not wonder if someone does a mitzvah but does not receive the reward.

-However even if one does not get the prescribed reward, the deed does not go to waste, it will still serve him in time of need.

-(Medrish Talpiyot- Ot-Alef)

Translated by Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum

THE ESSENTIAL RABBI NACHMAN

FAITH

Speak out your faith

Faith depends on a person’s mouth. We must say that we believe – say it out loud! “I will make Your faithfulness known with my mouth” (Psalms 89: 2 ).

When a person is experiencing a crisis of faith, or even passing doubts, it is very beneficial to say aloud: “I believe!” Simply giving expression to your faith in words is itself an act of faith, and this can bring you to true faith.

Likewise you should also be very careful never to say anything which implies even the slightest lack of faith, let alone total disbelief . Even if you are a believer in your heart, never express disbelief even as a joke – not even if you are merely quoting someone else to ridicule their opinion. To do this is very wrong and can be very damaging to your faith. Even as a joke it is forbidden say anything which implies disrespect of G-d.

Likutey Moharan II, 44

The Teachings of Rebbe Pinchas of Koretz and His Disciple, Rebbe Raphael of Bershad

ON FAITH

A disciple, tormented by wavering faith and unable to study, came to see R’ Pinchas. The rebbe responded that, as a young man, he, too, had wrestled with questions and doubts. “About man and his fate, creation and its meaning. I was struggling with so many dark forces that I could not advance; I was wallowing in doubt, locked in despair. I tried study, prayer, meditation. Penitence, silence, solitude. In vain. My doubts remained doubts, my questions remained threats. Impossible to proceed, to project myself into the future. I simply could not go on.” Then, one day, when the Baal Shem Tov was visiting his town, R’ Pinchas was led by curiosity to attend the gathering. “I was convinced that he was seeing me and no one else. … The intensity of his gaze overwhelmed me, and I felt less alone. And strangely, I was able to go home, open the Talmud, and plunge into my studies once more. You see, … the questions remained questions. But I was able to go on”

KEEP SMILING ~ Self-Growth, 27th Kislev, 5773

All We Need

The Creator gives us all we need, as we need it. Therefore…
We need never act in ugly ways, say harsh words, think nasty thoughts. How so? The Creator gives us all we need, as we need it.


We need never panic, cry, or sigh in despair, worry. Why not? The Creator gives us all we need, as we need it.

All we need do is to try — try to give a little more than we usually give – to be nice to those we prefer to avoid – to send prayers and blessings to those we know. Can we afford to act like this? The Creator gives us all we need, as we need it.

Moreover, we should sing as we work — keep smiling — glisten with happiness and tranquility. After all, the Creator gives us all we need, as we need it.

By Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Schwartz

Joke of the day – 27th Kislev, 5773

A man applies for a job as mechanic. The boss says, “Can you roll your hard hat down your arm and pop it back on your head?” The mechanic nods, confused. “Can you play light-saber with your wrench and another man’s screwdriver?” “Oh yes,” says the mechanic. “Can you bounce your screwdriver off the cement, grab it, whirl it around and put it in your belt like a gun?” “Sir, I’ve been doing that for years!” says the wanna-be mechanic. “Well in that case, I can’t use you. I have 12 men doing all that already!” says the boss.

Daily Torah Quote – 27th Kislev, 5773

Rabbi Shimon would say: Three who eat at one table and do not speak words of Torah, it is as if they have eaten of idolatrous sacrifices; as is stated, “Indeed, all tables are filled with vomit and filth, devoid of the Omnipresent” (Isaiah 28:8). But three who eat at one table and speak words of Torah, it is as if they have eaten at G-d’s table, as is stated, “And he said to me: This is the table that is before G-d”.
(Ezekiel 41:22). (Avot 3).
