Heavenly Messages

Thank you Rabbi. I am very careful about listening to my messages and last week of Parshat Trumah, I was bombarded with the message to be less critical and more accepting, there are all sorts of offerings that Hashem accepts from his people and not everyone can bring gold!!! Obviously this is coming from constant "self criticism". In the hope of improving myself and the world around me. Now how do you suggest that I reconcile this attitude with what you just said that one should hope for greatness? Does that mean that I have to work on Emunah that I have done my Hishtadlut and have to leave the rest to Hashem? Be well and be blessed always.

Just what I needed

I needed to hear this just now. I had no idea who Jeremy Lin was. Just when I am feeling so defeated I know great things are still possible. Thank you, perfect words, perfect timing.

Its great that sometimes, good guys finish first

Jeremy Lin, like all G-d's children, has G-d's love and concern. He's also a good role model -- an NBA star who was going to be just fine if that hadn't worked out, with a degree from Harvard. I'm delighted for him that while he's young and in great condition, he's able to play basketball. I'm even more thrilled that young people can see a basketball star who got a great education and won't be down and out in a few years due to age or injury, because he's cultivated his intellect as well as his body. We need more like him!

Of course G-d cares!

Yet another truly inspiring and wise commentary, dear Rabbi Salomon. I loved the unexpected twist - a good turn toward HaShem - that you took with this. Just the message I needed to think about today!
