How to use "Mitzvah" in context?

What is a mitzvah? Simply put, a mitzvah is a religious duty or commandment. It is often translated as a "commandment," but this is not technically accurate. A mitzvah is not a physical commandment like "sit down" or "don't eat that," but rather a moral demand or instruction. Most mitzvahs are connected with one of the six commandments outlined in the Bible: "Honor your father and mother." Other mitzvahs commonly performed include giving charity, tithing, fasting, and praying.
