This feature is dedicated in the merit of Greg Burd, of blessed memory, to honor and perpetuate his legacy of secret acts of kindness.
All of us want to be spiritually great in some way. The story of Greg's sudden death and revelations of the many secret acts of kindness he did touched people all over the globe, partly because of the tragedy but also largely because of the knowledge that a person exists in the world who wants to help people, solely to help people, and not for any side benefit like respect, status or validation.
The purity of doing something good, only for its sake and for the Lord is an incredibly lofty level which we all see is possible now.
Greg was not an old man with a white beard from a long dynasty of Sages. He grew up not religious and played high school football. One day he made a decision to explore truth, and the next day to devote his life to it and the next day to work as hard as he could to reach his spiritual potential.
If he did it, we can also do it. Here is one way to emulate his example:
Donate anonymously to enable someone else to have a 40-day prayer said for them. Through it you get the good deeds of prayer and charity all at once and the purity of not getting any credit for it in this world, so the deed remains whole with you in the heavens.
May the Lord reward your efforts of kindness and give you a life of blessing, bounty, and goodness.
