If you can do something good, why not do it?


"How does one recite [the wayfarer's prayer]? Rav Chisda said: While standing [to improve one's concentration]. Rav Sheshet said: Even while travelling.

"Rav Chisda and Rav Sheshet were travelling, and Rav Chisda halted to pray. Rav Sheshet [who was blind] said to his servant, "What is Rav Chisda doing?" He said, "He has halted, and he is praying." Rav Sheshet said, "Halt me, too, and I will pray; given the chance to be good, do not be called bad.""

(Talmud, Berachot 30a)

Have a great day,
