“By the sweat of your brow, you shall eat bread”.
A fascinating remark brought by Rav Arush in the name of Rabbi Israel of Salant:
A person who works overtime [because he thinks this will help him financially] is actually pursuing the Torah’s curse
Many people believe that this verse is a commandment.
They do not understand that it is a curse upon Adam, whose primary sin was his fall in emuna [faith]
So what they are really doing is perpetuating the sin of Adam,
a flaw in emuna.
