Using Our Speech, Minds, Hearts and Actions

Although this is a companion to Mitzvah N2, this mitzvah is a positive command to use our minds, speech, etc. for the good.

While the compilations of rabbinical commentators list many of the positive and negative components of this Mitzvah #H9, the weight of Scripture (that we should use every aspect of our being for good) cried out that this Mitzvah should broadly combine them.

I list the Scriptures by three catagories: Our Speech, Our Minds & Hearts and Our Actions. I also list some Scriptures which show it can be positive when we also remain silent. There is much for us to reflect on.

Mitzvah H9
