If you walk in My statutes… I will give your rain in due season (26:3)
Maimonides’ concept of the “reward” for mitzvot in this world has a parallel in Torah law. The law states that farm workers must be allowed to eat of the food they are working with; even an animal may not be “muzzled as it threshes.” This is not payment for their work–their wages they receive later, after their work is done–but a special provision that says that they must be allowed to eat from the produce they are working with.
By the same token, we are employed by G-d to develop and elevate His world through the performing of mitzvot. The actual reward for our work will come later, in the World To Come, after our task is completed; but G-d is also “obligated” to allow us to enjoy the material blessings of this world, which is the object of our toil.
(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)
Rabbi Cohen is talking to Esther’s young son.
“So David,” he says, “you tell me that your mother always says prayers for you every night. That is really nice of her. It’s a mitzvah, you know. So tell me, what does she say during her prayers, David?”
“She says, ‘Thank G’d my son’s in bed.'”
