Hard Work

“Getting married and making a living” is not the end goal at all; it is a means to an end goal. Marriage and livelihood makes sense only when viewed as aids in fulfilling life’s mission. Getting married is a wonderful mitzvah, but if a person doesn’t view marriage as a way of getting closer to Hashem, why get married? Why serve as a slave in fulfilling the needs of a wife and children. (Conversely) when marriage is a means to achieving one’s ultimate goal, it becomes deeply gratifying.

These daily lifts are inspired by Jonny Chippeck and dedicated to his ‘refuah shleimah’. Get well soon Jonny!

Please step up to the plate and contribute your own small nugget of Torah by sending back to me at terence@speedquote.net. The more people we have contributing, the higher this daily lift will go!
