Why chesed [kindness] matters so much


"The Talmud says that one who only studies Torah, and does not engage in kindness, is as though he has no Gd to protect him, as though he had no true Gd, Gd-forbid. This is because Gd's traits are acts of kindness, and one is supposed to follow Gd's traits."

(R' Shmuel Eideles, Maharsha to Avodah Zarah 17b)

Have a great day,
