Live with Love, Live with Joy

 

A believer approached Rabbi Moshe of Kobryn and asked: “How should I best use my days so that God will be contented with my actions?”

“There is only one possible option: to live with love,” replied the Rabbi.

Minutes later, another follower approached him and asked the same question.

“There is only one possible option: try to live with joy.”

The first follower was taken aback.

“But the advice you gave me was different!”

“Not at all,” said the rabbi. “It was exactly the same.”
