    LB – “Maybe Randomex means that the question really is, “”Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for Hashem?'”

    I was waiting for that response. Thanks, LB :).

    My answer to that is that I think they are really one and the same. Fulfilling Ratzon Hashem is the best thing you can do for the world. When you serve Hashem, you are helping the Jews and the entire world.

    Makes sense. To get to the point of doing for others, one has to do Hashem first. It’s implicitly dependent.

    My point was that you are helping others when you serve Hashem. And that should be part of the reason you are doing it.

    Of course, the reason you want to help others in the first place should be because Hashem wants you to help others. And the best way to help others is through serving Hashem.

    Similar to how if you help families, you help children.

    I wondered why they called it, Jewish Family and Children Services, and not Jewish Children and Family Services. Then I realized that by helping the family unit as a whole, children are helped in the process.

    I think there’s a quote from R’ Ahron Kotler to the effect of:

    “Learning Torah (and doing Mitzvos) is doing Chessed with the whole world”

    (totally paraphrasing here).
