Comment: When I have a high fever, I can’t move.
Answer: And in the case that you would be fired from work and your family would be left without any means of subsistence? You see this is the question: how could you stay home?
I am asking the same question. Because I work and receive a salary, but it is spiritual. I am being paid with the opportunity to bestow and so I get up for the lesson. After all, man simply calculates what is more important to him and acts accordingly.
