FROM G-DíS POINT OF VIEW
I. Mitzvos - obligatory vs. voluntary - which is more fundamental?
A. psychological: more resistance to obligatory
B. for G-d: obligatory are more important
C. we are required to adopt G-dís point of view since that is the truth
II. We cannot intuit G-dís point of view - if He did not tell us we could not know - compare G-dís concern for our diet
III. The "lost" mitzva - is it a loss to G-d that someone else filled the need?
IV. Retarded children, aborting impaired fetus: our vicarious pleasure vs. what G-d wants for that soul
V. Choice of life priorities - not always on the basis of strongest talents - sometimes weaker talents will produce more value - the Torah gives the hierarchy of values
VI. Friendship: we should want the best life for a friend - that implies advising him on his shortcomings - avoid false "liberalism" which is really unconcern - compare suicide based on mistake, treating drug addiction
