Why Weren’t You Zusya?

 

A rabbi named Zusya died and went to stand before the judgment seat of God. As he waited for God to appear, he grew nervous thinking about his life and how little he had done. He began to imagine that God was going to ask him, "Why weren't you Moses or why weren't you Solomon or why weren't you David?"

But when God appeared, the rabbi was surprised for God simply asked, "Why weren't you Zusya?"
