The Sod Ha’Avodah of Slonim zt’l, visited the city of Krinek to collect funds for the ongoing construction of his Beis Medrash. He approached a wealthy acquaintance who hesitated to give a large contribution which the Rebbe requested.
When the Sod Ha’Avodah noticed his uncertainty, he said that in this week’s parsha, Parshas Pinchas, it says: פנ-חס – if you guard your money, then בן – you should think into it and understand (the word בן is from the word בינה – to understand), then, אל – עזר – Hashem will help and will help even more, in the merit of Tzedakah.
