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.
Marriage is a microcosm of the soul's descent into this world: If you are here looking for what you can get out of this world, then the world and all its trappings will only drag you down. But if you are looking for what you can give, then you, your part of the world, and your soul all are uplifted and filled with light. So too, when you enter a marriage: Look for what you can give, and reap harmony and love.
