A young man came to the Rebbe to receive his blessing. The Rebbe looked at him and said, "A Jew must be happy!"

The young man replied, "Rebbe, what is there to be happy about?"

The Rebbe answered, "Be happy that you were privileged to wrap tefillin this morning!"

The young man mumbled a few words that made the situation quite obvious.

The Rebbe responded, "Be happy that you have a G‑d who waits every minute for the moment you will return to Him and wrap tefillin!"
