Give It All You've Got!

When the Temple stood, certain offerings were based on a person’s means. A poor person could bring an offering of lesser value, while a wealthy person who brought the same offering had not fulfilled his obligation. Since G-d had blessed him with wealth, more was expected of him.
Lubavitcher Rebbe
Give It All You’ve Got!
Disc 125, Program 500

Event Date: 11 Nissan 5741 - April 15, 1981

When the Temple stood, certain offerings were based on a person’s means. A poor person could bring an offering of lesser value, while a wealthy person who brought the same offering had not fulfilled his obligation. Since G-d had blessed him with wealth, more was expected of him.

The same applies on a personal level. A person must strive to serve G-d as is expected of him or her, based on the gifts with which they were blessed.

Here, the Tanya goes a step further. With each day a person must make sure to grow, even in their strongest points. After all, time is also a gift, and must be used accordingly.

Once again Rebbe misses not a beat.

What does it mean to 'perform' today? How did the Rebbe utilize the technological innovation of his time? What technological invention has been given to us that didn't exist then? Reply
