4 Kislev 5766
Pirkei Avos 2:8
“One who increases wealth increases worry…One who increases charity increases peace.”
Some people want to have a lot of money in order to feel secure. The Mishna says that won’t work. Only when people realize that they have to earn their money in a Kosher way (not hurting others, or doing illegal acts,etc.) because Hashem is the “Mechalkel Chaim” (supporter of life) and spend it properly (zeddaka and other mitzvos, not for “keeping up with the Cohens”,etc.) will their possessions give them tranquility.
