From HaYom Yom, from Day to Day, taken from the entry for the 8th of Kislev...
Man should ponder thoughtfully how great are the kindnesses of the Creator: Such a puny insignificant being, Man, can bring great delight to the "Greatest of all great"' of Whom it is written, "There is no delving into His greatness."
Man ought therefore always be inspired, and perform his Avoda (divine service, prayer and mitzvot) with an eager heart and spirit.
This is one of those statements that just wow you. How far we are from Hashem, how small and unimportant. Yet, all of creation is here so we can fulfill His will, bringing us close. No other creature can do this.
But, it's so hidden, so easy to get buried in the mundane, to miss the opportunity.
