Enjoy the fruits of your labour

The Gemara (Berachot, 8a) says that someone who enjoys the fruit of his labour is greater than someone who fears Hashem. How can this be? The explanation is readily comprehensible: For a person to enjoy the fruit of his labour, he must be humble. How do we know if a person is humble? A humble person is happy with his lot in life; in other words, with whatever Hashem gives him.

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. Keep them coming.
