We dare not waste


"The gemara [I know that this is in Mechilta Bo 9, but I have not found it in the gemara - MT] says that if a mitzvah comes to hand, you should not let it go to waste.

"Wasting one mitzvah opportunity is bad, but teshuvah is possible. But wasting one’s self, all of one’s potential actions, is so great that teshuvah is nearly impossible! To our great sorrow, many youths are struck with this."

(R' Klonymus Kalman Schapiro, Chovot haTalmidim Perek 13)

Have a great day,
