What is truly valuable? Spiritual wealth. When you nourish your soul in this world, your soul is truly wealthy, for all eternity.
The good deeds that one does are eternal. A person with financial wealth can transform this into spiritual wealth by doing many acts of kindness with his money. He can help worthy institutions and causes. He can help individuals in financial need. He can support Torah and those who study it.
(Growth Through Tehillim: Exploring Psalms for Life Transforming Thoughts, pp. 108-9)
We're human. We need food. We need meaning and connection. And we most definitely need encouragement.

to encourage ourselves and others, particularly when we feel overwhelmed or depleted.
In Encouragement, Rabbi Pliskin shares meditations and affirmations, inspirational true stories, and his trademark

optimistic, and upbeat people.
