Payment Overdue!
Does G-d pay His workers on time?
The Torah commands that a laborer's payment not be withheld even a day. G-d Himself, our Sages tell us, observes the very commandments He obligates us to fulfill. How then does G-d not immediately reward man for his/her service of Him, deferring man's reward to the 'World to Come'?! (Likutei Sichos, Ki Teitzei volume 29)

Happiness = A Little Less Self
The word selfless is accurately put. We will never entirely obliterate the self. We can continuously make our lives less and less about self. While it may seem counterintuitive, this is also the path to greater happiness.

Sending Away the Mother Bird
Studying Rashi: Parshat Ki-Teitzei
