Why does the Torah find it necessary to inform us that Bil'am saddled his ass?


Rashi: To teach us that, although his two servants accompanied him, he personally saddled it - in keeping with the adage 'Hatred causes a person to act inappropriately!' 1


Rashi: But Hakadosh-Baruch-Hu countered by referring that Avraham had preceded him, in a display of love - which also causes a person to act inappropriately - arose early in the morning and personally saddled his donkey, to go to the Akeidah.
