comment Ice-cream scoop on Shabbos
Thanks @Menachem! I'm afraid I just couldn't think of a reason why not to use it, but if you are making a shape out of the food it seems some say it's forbidden. If you put your comment into an answer I will accept it.

@Menachem On its own. I know that cooking the ice-cream is not allowed.

comment Is buying a lottery ticket a lack of faith?
You have correctly identified the essence of my question as relating to hishtadlus in parnassah, and I thank you for clarifying my own thinking. :-) Your answer and comments address profound matters of emunah, but I maintain that you have not answered the question fully. I will contemplate an answer of my own.

I have skimmed through your sources and did not find support for or allusion to reward proportional to effort. On the contrary: "However, the effort is not what helps, but is only an abstract necessity (independent of the Providence that brings us sustenance)". Please clarify.

Do you have a source for 'the greater the effort, the greater the reward' with regard to parnassah in Jewish hashkafa? This would address the core of my question.
