A Formula for Joyful Living
"Transfer your burdens to HaShem and He will sustain you."

There was once a royal servant, who knew that the king was extremely generous, merciful, and kind. What’s more, the king faithfully compensated his servants according to the difficulty and effort of their labor. Accordingly, whoever faithfully served the king was assured of great honor, dignity, and wealth.

In light of the king’s wonderful qualities, the servant firmly trusted in the king’s goodness. He rejoiced in whatever task the king assigned him to perform. Indeed, the harder the task the more he rejoiced, because he knew the king would remunerate him proportionally to the intensity of his efforts.

This parable illuminates the relationship between faith and trust in HaShem. Faith in HaShem is founded upon our recognition that HaShem is infinitely good, compassionate, and kind. Even more, He compensates His servants with countless blessings, splendor, and reward.

Once a person has attained faith in HaShem’s goodness, he will then place his full trust in HaShem, just as the royal servant trusted in his king. His faith and trust in HaShem’s compassion and care will insure that he is always happy! Even if he has difficulties he continues to rejoice, because he knows that HaShem will generously reward him according to level of his exertion.

May we reflect on HaShem’s infinite goodness and place our sincere trust in Him. As a result, we will discover the path of a joyous life, as King David said, "Transfer your burdens to HaShem and He will sustain you."

[Based on Orchos Tzadikim, The Gate of Happiness]

TODAY: Rejoice in HaShem’s love for you and His faithfulness to compensate your efforts with countless blessings and reward.
