A man is walking down the street. Suddenly, someone comes up from behind and gives him a big slap on the back. He turns around to see who it is.
If it is his enemy, he will be furious at him, but if it’s his friend he will greet him joyfully.
Sometimes we receive a “slap on the back,” but we have to realize that it’s all from Hashem, and Hashem loves us!
