What Pleases God

On the Torah’s day of joy, Ball-Shem’s pupils celebrated, drinking the master’s wine. The rabbi’s wife complained:
  “If they drink all the wine, there won’t be any for the ceremony,” she said.
“Put an end to the party,” replied the rabbi.
The woman went to the room where the pupils were drinking. But as soon as she opened the door, she changed her mind and went back to her husband.
“Why didn’t you do anything?” asked Baal-Shem.
“Because they danced, sang and were so full of joy for life,”, replied his wife. “I hadn’t the courage.”
“You have understood: this is how God receives the gratitude of his people – seeing they are content. Go there and serve my disciples more wine,” concluded the rabbi.
