Daily Torah Thought - 2/11


"There is a religious demand to develop those virtuous dispositions that would motivate us to act benevolently, independent of divine commands... At the same time, we do not want our independent spiritual yearnings to cause us to lose the sense of being beholden to divine command."

(Rabbi Yitzchak Blau, Purity of motivation and Desiring the world to come, Torah UMadda Journal Vol. 14 pg. 154)

Have a great day,
