Bereishis 6:13 "For the land was filled with theft and robbery."
 
The story is told of how in Radomsk where the heilge Tiferes Shlomo lived there was a brutal tax collector. This Jew worked for the gentile authorities and his tactis were heartless and ruthless. He would literally steal and rob the Jewish population's money filling the coffers of his emploers and lining his own rich pockets. One day the attribute of Divine judgment took its toll against the man and his young son met an untimely end.

"And you ate and were satiated and you blessed Hashem your G-d."

Rav Shlomo of Karlin once remarked that the verse juxtaposes statiation of hunger with blessings because, the real truth is that one is ultimately truly satiated from the blessings recited after the meal than from the meal itself!

There was once a great powerful king who lived in a well guarded palace. Though the king was kind and just, it was nearly impossible to be granted an audience with the king due to his stature and regal court. Each room of the palace had guards stationed at the doors and only the high level courtiers, ministers and statesmen had access. Even they needed to be granted an audience, and an audience was only granted at specific times. Under such conditions it was simply a well known fact that one could not approach the king.

"Israel took all these cities, and Israel settled in all the Amorite cities, in Cheshbon and all its suburbs. For Cheshbon — it was the city of Sichon, king of the Amorite; and he had warred against the first king of Moav and took all his land from his control, until Arnon. Regarding this the poets would say: Come to Cheshbon — let it be built and established as the city of Sichon..." (Bamidbar 21:25-27)

Korach and the Song of the Harp
 
Rav Moshe Teitelbaum the author of Yismach Moshe once testified about himself that in one of his soul's past lives he was among the Dor HaMidbar, the generation of Klal Yisroel which wandered forty years in the desert.
 
Upon hearing this wondrous account, his grandson the Yetev Lev asked him, "Zeida, if you were incarnated among the Dor HaMidbar you must have present during the great battle between Korach and Moshe Rabbeinu? Tell us Zeida whose side did you take during the dispute?"

Master of the House
 
Bamidbar 15:39 "Do not stray after your heart."
 
There was once a chassid who visited the great Maggid of Mezritch, the second generation successor to the holy Baal Shem Tov and at that time the leader of all of chassidus. This chassid had a complaint, he was constantly being plagued by bad thoughts:
 
"Rebbe, no matter what I do I cannot make them stop! Constantly, again and again, I have all sorts of foreign thoughts that plague me! When I try to daven they interfere with my devotions, and when I try to study Torah they disrupt my learning. Rebbe, please help me overcome these negative thoughts, what should I do?"
