Actions Speak Louder Than .....

Don't say things. What you are stands over you the while, and thunders so that I cannot hear what you say to the contrary.

Ralph Waldo Emerson



Many people ask mechilah but their actions testify to the fact that they don't really mean it. So don't JUST ask someone for forgiveness but show him by your actions that you really mean it.

Don't JUST tell your wife that you love her but SHOW her [this will cost you money].

Don't just tell your children that learning/davening/chessed is important but make it a primary component of your life and they will get the message.

This is what chazal meant when they said "Gadol shimusha yoser mi'limuda" [Brachos 7b] - Greater is SERVING a Torah scholar that learning from one. When you serve him you see the Torah practiced in real life. Learning - with all of its greatness - remains in the realm of mere words. [See Ayn Ayah there!]

Love and blessings!!!
