Malchus Shebehod – Selflessness in consistency
Pupil: My sister and I know the meaning of every word in the world.
Teacher: What does egotistical mean?
Pupil: That would be one of the words my sister knows.
Don’t become arrogant about your ability to be steadfast, consistent and reliable.
Remember that it is not always about you, rather how you effect and benefit the people around you.
Do not become obsessed in your rigid schedules and patterns; do not worship your own need to be consistent. Rather, focus also on how it is affecting the people around you.
