ACCIDENTAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS

[111a middle] R’ Rosner explaining Penei Yehoshua: People only get all the beautiful blessings of the Holy land (as well as being free from sin), when they are living in Israel with proper spiritual intentions [not just because they happened to be born there, have great business opportunities, or enjoy the climate and scenery].

D-E-ep Thoughts: What we accomplish is not what defines us. G-d knows all of our intentions and we are obligated to fulfill commandments with proper mindsets. Just because someone fell and dropped a couple of coins which got picked up by a pauper, it does not mean that the person has fulfilled his/her duty of giving Tzedakah. We should always maintain proper focus and achieve with appropriately considered calculations.
