The boss is coming…look busy!

A teaching about prayer from the Baal Shem Tov, Amud HaTefilla.

Don’t say, “On Shabbat I’ll pray with the right intention, but during the week I can’t be bothered.” Otherwise you’ll be like the royal servants who work hard only when the king is around, but as soon as he leaves slack off again. This is not being a good employee.
