The value of humility


“Humility is the root of service. A small deed, performed out of humility, is one thousand times more acceptable to Gd than a great deed performed out of arrogance. And so the sages said [Berachot 5b], ‘It is the same, whether one does a lot or a little, so long as his heart’s intent is for the sake of heaven.’”

(Orchot Tzaddikim, Shaar ha'Anavah)

Have a great day,
