Plea For Help

Tales of the Gaonim-logo

“If they will ask, ‘Did you devote time to the study of Torah?’ I will answer, ‘I am an ignorant person and my mind could not comprehend it.’

“If they ask, ‘Did you do much praying and fasting for your sins?’ I will reply, ‘I am weak and sickly and couldn’t do it because of health reasons.’

“If they will ask, ‘Did you give charity to the poor?’ I will respond, ‘I, too, was poverty-stricken. Therefore, I had no money for others.’

“But I fear if they should ask, ‘True, you may have been ignorant, sickly and poor, but what right did you have to be haughty?’ I fear that I will have no answer for them. Woe is to me, for how will I be able to answer this question?”
