Misappropriation of Funds


Each of us is allocated from above just the amount of time we need to get our mission done. Some of that time will be for learning, teaching, helping others. Some of that time will be needed for making a living—also a divine task with purpose and meaning.

But none of us can justify our obsession with making a living by claiming that it leaves no time to learn or to teach.

This is nothing less than misappropriation of funds—spending all the allotted time on one task at the expense of your principal purpose in this world. Each of us is foremost a student and a teacher. ~ The Lubavitcher Rebbe as quoted by R’ Tzvi Freeman
