Daily Lift #1116

The Joy of Good Deeds

The commandments were given for our ultimate benefit and pleasure. Therefore we should feel great joy whenever doing any good deeds.

[Think about the good deeds you currently perform with joy. Then, think about the potential joy you have not yet experienced - and how your life would be enhanced by mastering the ability to experience joy for good deeds.]

(Mussray Rebbeinu Yehonoson, cited in Rabbi Pliskin's "Gateway to Happiness," p.91)

We're human. We need food. We need meaning and connection. And we most definitely need encouragement.

In Encouragement, Rabbi Pliskin shares meditations and affirmations, inspirational true stories, and his trademark wise, practical advice. He shows us how our words can help others - and ourselves -- become more confident, optimistic, and upbeat people.
