Mitzvah Saves Your Life - R' Shea Rubenstein

We often focus on how doing a Mitzvah benefits receiver, but did it ever occur to you that doing a mitzvah can actually help you more than them?

This is illustrated in the story of a girl named Esty who met a woman who was in dire need of a kidney. Compelled by her sad state of affair, Esty decided to get tested the very next day to see if she could be a donor match. After the exam, it was discovered that Esty had a stage 1 illness. If she had not gone for pretesting, the illness would have revealed itself when it was too late to be treated.

Sometimes a mitzvsh helps you more than anybody else.
