38. Once the Baal Shem Tov told his disciple Reb Dovid to travel to Bessarabia and bring him from there Kosher wine (on the highest level,) Reb Dovid went and had tremendous dedication to ensure that the wine was one hundred percent kosher – he also tried very hard on his way back to ensure nothing (such as a gentile, taking from the wine) to render it unkosher – to his great sorrow, the inspector (who was so worried about people smuggling vodka) took some of the wine and invalidated – broken-hearted he came to the Baal Shem Tov and asked: why God caused this to happen? – the Baal Shem Tov said, because, you tried very hard… but most importantly you should have asked God to help.
