Avot 4

(5739) Mishnah 2: "Ben Azzai would say: Run to pursue a minor mitzvah", 
The innovation in this lesson compared to: "Be as careful with a minor mitzvah as with a major one" (Avot 2:1).

The difference between the three cases:
1) Run to pursue a minor mitzvah
2) It is a Mitzvah to run to a house of worship and also to all Mitzvot (Shulchan Aruch O.C. 90:12)
3) fleeting as a deer etc to do the will of your Father in Heaven. (Avot 5:20)
The Avodah of Ben Azzai who said" What should I do since my soul yearns for Torah" (Talmud Yevamot 63b)
