With all your heart

by GYE (See all authors)

We recite the first pasuk of kriyas shema four times a day "And you shall love your G-d with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength." And Chaza"l say, "even if he takes your life". So why are so many people willing to give up their love of G-d for such meaningless pleasures?

Next time you are tested, imagine you were being tortured by the inquisition to give up your faith. Would you give in? If it came down to the real test, most of us would be willing to give up our lives for G-d . So keep this thought in mind.The tests that we go through aren't even 100th as bad as what we would be truly willing to suffer, if faced with the ultimate choice!
