|A story of the Rebbe #205 - The Chassid Bought a Stroller|
The chassid, A., who did not have any children, asked the Rebbe for a bracha. The Rebbe gave him a bracha, and a year later a son was born to A. A's friend, who was a misnagged and also wanted a child, was very inspired by this story, and he said, "If the Rebbe can give such blessings, I would also like a bracha." He asked the Rebbe for the bracha, which the Rebbe gave him.
However, a year went by, and then another, and the bracha was not fulfilled. So he visited the Rebbe again, and asked why A.'s bracha had been answered, but his was not. The Rebbe replied, "When your friend, the chassid, walked out of yechidus with the bracha, he immediately bought a stroller for the baby. He had so much faith that the bracha would be fulfilled, and it was this faith that formed the vessel to ensure that the bracha would be answered. This was not the case with you, who was just waiting to see what would happen ???"
