Dvar for Vayeira (Genesis 18:1-22:24)
The Lekach Tov explains that this act shows Avraham’s sensitivity to others even more because water was the only item that Avraham didn’t have time to fetch himself. Avraham’s thinking was that if he was going to trouble his servants to get the water, he had no right to ask them to bring more water then is actually needed. It was Avraham’s sensitivity to his staff that compelled him to only offer a small quantity of water to his guests. We, too, need to be mindful of the needs of those around us, especially our family and friends, teachers and staff, and take no one for granted.
