Poverty may be a need, too


"Rabbi Zusia of Anipoli lived in abject poverty. Someone asked him, 'How can you be sincere in reciting the blessing thanking Gd for giving you all your needs when you lack so much?'

"Rabbi Zusia replied, 'Gd knows what my needs are better than I do. If He knows that one of my needs is poverty, who am I to say otherwise?"

(R' Dr. Avraham Twerski, Rebbes and Chassidim, Chapter 38)

Have a great day,
