Dear Friends -“to see”

The fourth section of the Book of Deuteronomy, continues with Moses’s second farewell address to the Jewish people. Their choice will result either in a life of blessings or one of curses.

Moses urged the Jewish people to realise that G-d gives them the choice between good and evil. Their choice will result either in a life of blessings or one of curses.

Moses told the Jewish People in G-d’s name “see I set before you today a blessing and a curse”…….

A Divine curse is actually a blessing that is too great to be revealed within our limited world and must therefore be “disguised” as a curse. Our challenge is to see it in this perspective, rather than falling into trap of becoming angry with G-d. Thus, pain and negativity exist in order to enable us to earn the rewards for our choices, so we need not feel unworthy of the blessings that G-d bestows upon us.

When we recognise that evil exists solely to provide us with the free choice to reject it, our struggle with it becomes much easier.

Have a wonderful Shabbat and successful week to follow, enjoy your holidays and travel safe.
