Get out of bed!


Upon waking in the morning:

"One should contemplate, in his heart, before Whom he lies. He should know that the King of the Kings of Kings, HaShem, is floating above him, as it is written, 'I fill the heavens and the earth; this is the word of Gd.' Were he lying before an immanent mortal king, he would be liable for his life! How much more so before the King of the Kings of Kings, HaShem!

"And therefore he should rise immediately, with energy, to the service of his Creator. He should not say, 'I will lie in my bed and learn,' but rather he should rise and dress, as it is written, 'Prepare to greet your Gd, Israel!'"

(Shulchan Aruch haRav Orach Chaim 1:1)

Have a great day,
