Deeds are Primary


"Why did the Sages say that one should first don tefillin, and then recite Shema and the amidah? So that he would accept the monarchy of Heaven first, completely."

[Commentators explain: One who practices mitzvot is more complete in his acceptance of Divine monarchy.]

(Talmud Yerushalmi, Berachot 2:3)

Have a great day,
