It Takes Some Work

One must work in order to receive Hashem’s blessings.  The passuk states “In order that Hashem, your God, bless you in all your handiwork” (Devarim 14:29).  You must provide some handiwork for God’s blessing to be applied to.  ~ Tanna D’vei Eliyahu

    I love your emails. Thank you so very much. If you have no objection, perhaps you can consider adding a more precise source when mentioning a possuk, gemoroh, medrash, Zohar, etc. such as including the perek or daf, etc. I personally like to look up quotes that I am not familiar with to see exact language and context. I would have wanted to look up the Tanna D’vei Eliyahu you quoted below (which I have already learned more than once yet I cannot recall the message you quoted below). Adding rabbah or zuta and which perek would have been appreciated.

    A gutten chodesh and Shabbos.

    Thank you for the comment. I sometimes haven’t included exact citations in the past because I think it is just cleaner. The secret to the success of this blog is that the quotes are nice and short. However, I will try to make more of an effort to include the source where I can. Very often, however, I will take the quote from other reliable sources which quote the line I use and they often don’t provide the exact source. So if I don’t cite the exact source, assume it is because I don’t have it. Have a great shabbos!
