Positive Mitzvah 245
Positive Mitzvah 245: Conducting Business
Leviticus 25:14 "And if you sell something to your neighbor, or buy something from your neighbor"
The Torah deals with every aspect of our lives; not only with the way we pray and study, but also the manner in which we carry out our business.
This Positive Mitzvah establishes guidelines for our business dealings and governs the way we buy, sell, and transfer ownership of property.
These guidelines include writing business contracts, paying for goods with money, or exchanging one item for another.
Sometimes you don't know whether to punish a child or hug him. If you punish him when he needed a hug, you've made a serious mistake. But if you hug him when he should have been punished, so you've got an extra mitzvah.
