“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.
