The first Posuk (verse) in this weeks sedra (Torah portion) starts with Hashem (G-d) telling Avram (Abraham) to leave his homeland, his neighbours and his father's house. Hashem then says "I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you, and I will make your name famous, and be a blessing." What is the BIG test??

If Hashem came to you and said leave London, leave Golders Green and leave your home and go to Israel and I will make you wealthy and famous worldwide, would you not go??

The commentaries say that the test was whether or not Avram would go for the reward or go because Hashem wanted him to go.

That is why it such an enormous test. With all that reward staring you in the face its extremely hard to go “because Hashem told you to go” and not think about the reward. Similarly we know that some of the mitzvos (commandments) we perform, carry with them a reward. There are certain mitzvos that guarantee Olam Haba (Heaven in the next world) if we perform them, Kibud Av v'Em (Honouring one’s parents) and Talmud (the study of) Torah etc. It is up to us to see beyond the reward and do them because G-d wants us to instead of doing them because we know the reward!!

And that is the message we see in Pirkei Avos 1:3 "Antignus...used to say don't be like servants who are serving their master in order to receive reward, rather they should be like servants that serve their master not on condition of receiving reward"
