    There is a story with the Alter of Slobodka that reflects this as well. There was an individual in Slobodka that decided that he would be Mekabel Shabbos early and sit and learn in the Beis Hamedrash. When the Alter saw this fellow doing this he called him over and asked him to to reflect on the feelings he has when people come in “regular time” for Mincha. The fellow admitted that he felt disgust that these people thinking they are coming to shul and honoring Shabbos, if they really cared about Hashem and Shabbos they would have come hours earlier like he did. The Alter forbade him from ever coming early again. He said that if you were doing it Lshem Shmayim you would not look down on others who do not do so. I think that one of the amazing Middos of people like JR describes is the fact that they don’t look down on others who don’t do so. Great article.
