Vehicle Barrier and Shlomo Carlebach

Do More than the Minimum

When a person does more than was expected or demanded of him, that is a sign of love. On the other hand, the surest sign that someone is doing something begrudgingly is when he does the minimum and no extra.


This principle applies to the good deeds we do in helping others. When you take on more than the minimal requirements, it manifests your loving attitude.


Today, think of some area in which you have been trying to just "get by" with the minimal requirements. What more can you do in that area?


Love Yehuda Lave


Beautiful singing piece from the great Shlomo Carlebach --the Story of Adam and Eve
