As a person treats others here below, so he is treated above.

Perhaps someone once tried to tell you about the ugly deeds of another.

Perhaps you really wanted to hear. Yet, mustering all your moral strength, you quietly responded, “I’m not interested.”

And you didn’t listen.

Perhaps, when your soul returns to its place above, a prosecuting angel will appear to report on your deeds down here. And it’s possible that some of those deeds may also not have been so pretty.

But just as you responded, so too G‑d will also say, “I’m not interested. I don’t even want to listen.”

The sweat was worthwhile.
