Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Emunah channel is here. For Info www.torahfaith.org
If someone helps you, it is your duty to thank them, in accordance with their good intentions. Even if, due to extenuating circumstance, they fall short — indeed — and is prevented from helping you, nevertheless, you must thank them, since they have demonstrated their good will toward you and their desire to help you. On the other hand, if someone does you a favor unintentionally, you owe no gratitude.
When we reflect on the favors that men do for each other, we find that they fall into one of five categories: 1) the favors of a parent for their child; 2) of a master for their servant; 3) favors by the wealthy for the poor, in order to merit a spiritual reward; 4) those that one does for another in order to gain a good reputation, honor, and a worldly return; 5) favors done by powerful for the weak, out of compassion and empathy.
