Starving in the Penthouse

Even when all is well and one is healthy as can be, he still must pray to Hashem with desperation and plead, “Hashem, please keep me well!” Imagine a rich man sitting in his penthouse, his desk piled up with checks from all over, his pantry fully stocked, yet he tearfully bentches, “v’na al tatzricheinu,” “Hashem, please don’t let me starve!” Even in his success, this man understands that everything is only from Hashem, and that without Hashem, he truly is a starving man.
