Chukas (Numbers 19-22)

Va'eschanan (Deuteronomy 3-7)

6:25 And it will be charity to us when we take care to do before Hashem our G-D all of this commandment, just as He commanded.

How does fulfilling a commandment become a charity?

The Ramban commentary explains that this refers to the reward we will receive. Just like a servant is not entitled to reward from his master, we should not expect any reward for fulfilling G-D's commandments. But G-D will definitely reward us and this deserves our gratitude.

The Shiras Dovid commentary takes this a step further.

One does not always have the resources or opportunity to fulfill all of the commandments. We must therefore not lose sight of the need to be grateful to G-D whenever we have these opportunities and capability.

Rabbi General's Warning: Unbridled web surfing is not recommended. Navigate the web with caution. Use the Internet in a way so that it enhances quality of life for yourself as a person, as a family member, and as a member in society. The Internet can enhance the mastery of Torah knowledge and it can also interfere. If you are able to study in a Bet Medrash at this time then you should do so right now.
