Time is Life (Bo)


based on the droshos or R' Moshe Sternbuch, shlita

And we do not know how we will worship Hashem until we arrive there." (Shemos 10:25)
The Beis Yisroel expounded this possuk as follows. Sometimes we imagine that we are serving Hashem properly, but when we reach the Eternal World it may turn out that we have wasted the time allotted to us in order to earn eternal life, and we will then understand how each mitzvah illuminates our soul beyond imagination and how each sin soils it.

In this connection Rav Sternbuch recalls that when the Beis Yisroel moved to a new apartment he looked at his new home and said to Rav Sternbuch, “Don’t worry, I have not been enjoying this world for a while, since my wife and children were killed, and as for the World to Come, I don’t know what is in store for me there.

The Chofetz Chaim said: “People say that time is money, but I say that time is a chunk of life”, and squandering away one’s time is the equivalent of squandering away one’s life.
