Today is Day Four of Week Three (18th Day of the Omer)
Tuesday Night, April 17th
🌱Attribute of God: NETZACH ShebeTiferet or Victorious Eternal Harmonious Beauty 🌱Fruit of the Spirit: Peace 🌱Wisdom of the Rabbis:
There are people who do many good things, but with pessimism—because to them the world is an inherently bad place. Since their good deeds have no life to them, who knows how long they can keep it up?
We must know that this world is not a dark, sinister jungle, but a garden. And not just any garden, but G‑d’s own pleasure garden, full of beauty, wonderful fruits and fragrances, a place where G‑d desires to be with all His essence.
If the taste to us is bitter, it is only because we must first peel away the outer shell to find the fruit inside. - Rabbi Tzvi Freeman, Bringing Heaven Down to Earth 🌱Scripture Reflection:
Isaiah 54:10 “For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” Is my compassion enduring and consistent? Is it reliable or whimsical? Does it prevail among other forces in my life? Do I have the capacity to be compassionate even when I’m busy with other activities or only when it's comfortable for me? Am I ready to stand up and fight for another?
Exercise for the day: In middle of the busy day take a moment and call someone that needs a compassionate word. Defend someone who is in need of sympathy even if it's not a popular position.
