The Mitzvah (and a bonus!)

The Hebrew word “mitzvah” is used to describe divine commandments,

But to “do a mitzvah” means to do a kind and unselfish act.

Let us say that you encounter a person in difficulty or need

And you do a mitzvah--

A small kindness that costs you nothing

But means everything to them.

You have brought the divine light into two lives.

A mitzvah recognizes that we are all human

And is the moment when we bring divinity to that fact.

By doing a mitzvah every day

You have opened a light to shine in a dark world.

And now…a (relatively clean) joke!

My friend was dating a comparative theologian, but they broke up. All he thought about was sects.
