And if a person says, why should I trouble myself with this mitzvah of chessed-kindness? After all, so-and-so and so-and-so are wealthier than me; they do not bother with this mitzvah and instead they are amassing wealth which they will bequeath to their children — let me do the same! This is not a valid argument. If someone comes across a business opportunity that could generate huge profits and which he is confident has no risks, would he too refrain from doing the deal just because wealthier people than he did not do the same? On the contrary, it is obvious that he will rush to do the deal and turn a great profit! It is all the more so with regard to this mitzvah, about which the Torah guarantees that it brings only good and blessing upon a person. One should definitely act with alacrity and intensity to do this mitzvah and not look at others who neglect it.
כ״ה באב ה׳תשפ״א
Hashem says to you what is the best and what he demand from you, just do good deeds and Ahavas Chessed and meekness with Elokecha (Micha 6,8) 1
