Repentance for missed opportunities


"A person must work harder to fulfill a Mitzvah than to avoid violating a prohibition.

"If a person violates a prohibition, he can repent or he can receive his punishment and so erase the sin. If one does not fulfill a Mitzvah, though, then the gap remains regardless of his repentance."

(From a biography of the Chafetz Chaim)

Have a great day,
