Perform a single mitzvah well


"That which grows in a garden is not like that which grows in a field; a field is planted with only one or two varieties, as opposed to gardens which have many kinds of seeds. Still, each garden has one central variety, and small quantities of other varieties are planted around it.

"So, too, each Jew is filled with the mitzvot of Gd, but each has one special mitzvah in which he is extra careful, as is seen in Mechilta Beshalach 251, “One who performs a single mitzvah, faithfully, is worthy of Divine inspiration.”"

(Netziv, Haamek Davar to Bamidbar 24:6)

Have a great day,
