Motivation Dear Rabbi Gordon,
As for me, I have love and fear for ABBA, and in knowing that I am HIS child, I
surrender myself to honor HIM, in every aspect of my life. Being of this world,
I know that I am limited to how I perform mitzvot by the lack of knowledge , and
proper mannerisms . Thank you for your daily teachings.

Shalom ,

Motivation Or, i might add to what i said earlier, the person might view the reward as an idol wihtin the category of Love. But when i reheard this part of the chapter i realised that you probably meant doing a favor anyway. Reply

Motivation Dear Rabbi Gordon, you mentioned Love and Fear as the two reasons to do something against your will. Getting a reward came into my mind as another reason. Or does it fit into Fear, meaning the person thinks he can't obtain the reward any other way? Regards Reply
