The Greater Picture
It happens that sometimes we look at some of our friends who have been more successful than we have and we wonder, "how is it possible that they have attained so much, while I have attained so little?"
Rabbeinu Bachayei says in Chovevos HaLevavos that at this point one should introspect and come to the realization that just as I wish to serve the Ribbono Shel Olam so does my dear friend.
When it comes to situations like these we should realize that as we suffer though trials and tribulations, we are part of a greater nation that G-d loves.
