Truth and Humility go Together


R’ Elimelech of Lizhensk said, “I am confident of being admitted to Gan Eden.  The Heavenly Court will ask me, ‘Melech, did you study Torah adequately? and I will say ‘No.’ They will say ‘Did you daven properly?’ and I will say, ‘No.’  They will say ‘Did you give adequate tzedakah?’ and I will say ‘No.’ They will say, ‘He is truthful. Let him into Gan Eden.'” ~ R’ Abraham Twerski
