Love -Parshas Hashavua Vayigash

Sotah  49a 
"דאמרי אינשי
רחמי דאבא אבני, רחמי דבני אבני דהוו ליה"
'The love of a father, is for his children.
The love of his children are for their children."
(more love to your children than to your parents)

We find in this weeks Parsha . Yehudah was pleading
to Yosef to allow Binyomin to return to his father
otherwise his father (Yakov) will die. Why  not plead
about the suffering  of Binyomin's ten sons ?

The Kotzker Rebbe answers "From here we see
parents are in more pain when their children are
suffering than the pain children have when their parents
are suffering". 
 ...................................................................................
The Zohar( Parshas V’yechi) writes ," people love

their grandchildren more  than their own children."
