Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Emunah channel is here. For Info www.torahfaith.org
He who trusts in G-d has peace of mind and tranquility of soul.
He who trusts in HaShem is not hindered in his trust by wealth, for he does not rely on his money. Rather, he regards it as a deposit which he has been commanded to use in certain ways and certain purposes, for a limited amount of time. If it stays at length in his possession, he does not, on its account, become arrogant. He does not remind the recipients of his charity of the kindness he rendered to them, for he was only performing his duty. He does not wish to be thanked and praised for his kindness, but thanks the Creator, may He be exalted, for having made him an agent of kindness. If he loses his money, he will not grieve or mourn of its absence. Rather, he thanks HaShem when the deposit is collected, just as he thanked Him when it was first given to him. He rejoices in his portion, does not seek to injury anyone, and does not covert anyone’s property, as the Wise Man said: “A righteous man eats only until he is satisfied” (Mishlei 13:25).
