When explained the right way, this can be a valuable lesson for our everyday lives. We must realize that everything that we have is to be attributed to Hashem. We are graciously given our bodies, our possessions, and our abilities by Hashem, and we have to be grateful every single day and share it with people who are not as lucky as we are.
For example, we have to be thankful for how blessed we are to live in beautiful homes. We express that appreciation by fulfilling the mitzvah of inviting guests to share Hashem’s gift with us. Think about that when you look across the dinner table at your grateful neighbor, and make sure to go out of your way to make them feel welcome in your home like Hashem does for us in this world.
