Serve the Almighty With Joy
"Serve the Almighty with joy." (Psalms 100:2)
Joy adds to our enthusiasm and love for the Almighty and will motivate us to cleave to Him.
If a person is sad when he fulfills the commandments, it is analogous to a servant who serves his master with a sad facial expression.
Try to feel joy whenever you fulfill a mitzvah. The Talmud relates that some people saw that the Sage Abaye was very happy.
They asked him why. "I have just performed a mitzvah, so I feel great joy," he replied.
Speaking of serving with joy, see the u-tube of a young Itzhak Perlman. He is 66 now and we plan to see him this Saturday night in San Diego.
