Mitzvah #228 – Thinking the Jewish way

Tweet about this on Twitter0Share on Facebook0Share on LinkedIn0Pin on Pinterest0
One may not think thoughts that could cause one to reject Judaism, nor thoughts that are immodest.

Since worshipping G-d requires a clear head, it’s important to control one’s thoughts.

Included in this Mitzvah is pursuing pleasure for the sake of pleasure, as opposed to relaxing with the purpose of having renewed energy for doing Mitzvot.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Verse: “Do not stray after your eyes and after your minds” (Bemidbar 15:39)
