DVAR TORAH

    

Keep asking yourself, “what good deeds can I do now?”

”AND NOW ISRAEL, WHAT DOES THE LORD, YOUR G-D ASK FROM YOU.”

     The Chofetz Chayim taught that a person should view himself as someone employed by another person for a particular period of time. Upon completion of said task, he/she may approach the employer inquiring, "What should I do next?" It is this spiritual ethicality that should be our predilection as we navigate our relationship to the Almighty. When you finish one mitzvah you should immediately look for opportunities to do another mitzvah.

     This attitude can be seen in this verse. "And now Israel," at every present moment, ask yourself the question, "What can I do now? What does the Almighty ask of me at the present time?"

     There is a great difference between enjoying what you do and not enjoying what you do. When you are involved in some job or series of tasks that you are only doing because you are required but really dislike, as soon as you complete one task you are not very anxious to start something new. You will probably procrastinate. When, however, you are involved in work that you feel great pleasure in doing, you do not consider what you are doing as obligatory but as joyous gratification. You would prefer being active in those matters rather than resting or doing anything else. When a person develops a deep sense of joy for doing mitzvot, the individual feels great pleasure and satisfaction when engaged in a mitzvah. When he/she, for example, finishes one good deed, then he/she will immediately want to start doing another. Therefore to develop the attitude expressed by the Chofetz Chayim we need to appreciate the great value and beauty in doing good deeds. Once you feel a love for mitzvot, you will eagerly ask, "What good deeds can I do now?"

     These are opportune times to take upon our self to do an extra mitzvah on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Erez Yisroel. Take a mitzvah that you feel you can succeed and make it your own. Study the parameters of that mitzvah and fulfill it appropriately. This will stand as a merit in heaven for our extended family in Erez Yisroel and bring eternal peace in the holy land.

Have a wonderful Shabbos From the Perelson Mishpacha
