Watching: Rabbi Zev Leff on ShortVort.com


The Gemara teaches us that if we constantly involve ourselves with the study of Torah, our Yetzer Hara will never win and we will never commit a willful sin. But in a world where people have to work to make a living and support their families, how can we constantly involve ourselves with Torah? The Gemara speaks about two brothers. One involved themselves with the constant study of Torah meaning they were free from the attack of the Yetzer Hara. The other went out to make a living in order to support his brother. But did that mean that the second brother was always under attack from the Yetzer Hara? In actual fact, both brothers were constantly involving themselves with the study of Torah. While one was studying, the goal of his brother was always to support the study of Torah. His sole purpose in business was to support his brother's learning. And because he never forgot this, he was always involved with the study of Torah and his Yetzver Hara never had a chance. Now we have an answer to our question. As long as our sole goal is the study of Torah, then even when we are at work, our Yetzer Hara will never beat us! (Rendered from an essay by Rabbi Dessler in Strive For Truth)
