Filed under: Blog Torah,Daily Concepts,Sefer Yom Lyom — Reb Moshe @ 6:38 pm

Dedicated to those still coming back to the blog daily who haven’t given up on me as a teacher. Thanks…
1. A person should give advice only with kind words and selfless intentions.
2. It is easier for a person to take advice in a scenic calm setting. Especially near water.
3. A humble persons advice is taken seriously.
4. Giving advice at the wrong time to someone can lead them to commit more sins.
5. Most people give advice out of pride for themselves.
6. Don’t give advice to someone while in the company of their friends.
7. During the evening, a person is more receptive of advice.
8. If your not holding at the level of the advice your giving, don’t give it.
9. The higher a persons purity, the more understanding them have about life.
10. Better to be silent then to question the advice of a Tzaddik.
11. Even if the advice given to you is wrong, if it comes from a Tzaddik, it can become correct and carry with it tremendous blessing.
12. Don’t take advice from just anyone.
13. When you need advice, open up the e Sefer Ayin Yaakov to any page at random.
14. If you go to the grave of a Tzaddik to pray, you will always know what to do after.
15. Should you know that someone won’t accept your advice, leave them alone.
16. The best advice is given by example.
17. Sometimes the mos t important thing is not ti give advice at all but to just listen.
18. If you see may people are already advising someone, unless they are totally wrong in their advice, better to just show your friend support instead of annoying him.
19. Don’t give advice to someone wiser then you.


  1. what if a wiser person asks for advice?
