Mussar: Show a Happy Face

Courtesy of Derech Emet

Sefer Pele Yoetz, chapter Kabod HaBeriot [honoring people]:

Every wealthy person who shows a happy face to the poor. and speaks to them in a way that gives them honor, [he or she] is credited with a big good deed, because he revives the hearts of the crushed [people] and brings happiness to sad people;
and especially when your relatives are lowly poor people, do not be embarrassed to show [people] that they [poor people]
are your relatives; instead, be close to them and attend
their celebrations.

Pele Yoetz was completed by Rabbi Eliezer Papo (Sefardi Tahor). in Bulgaria on April 28, 1824; he lived from 1785 CE to 1826 CE.

Shalom and Best Regards,
