A Pick-Up

by Reb Gutman Locks   

A Pick-Up


     It was hot and dry…and to make things even more yucky… it was the Fast day. Oy! I sat at home, every few minutes thinking, "I am thirsty," which of course made me even more thirsty.

     Then, I went to the Kotel early to help out with tefillin. I got so busy that I forgot about the fast. A friend of mine came in with a really red face. I warned him, "You better drink some water, your face is all red." He said that he would as soon as the fast was over. I had completely forgotten about the fast!

     It's a guaranteed pick up… whenever you help pick up someone else, Hashem picks you up even more.

     And, do you know why they are called Fasts? It's a prayer that they should go fast.
