Todays eMussar Lesson 14th Tishrei 5770

 

eMussar Lesson for 14th Tishrei, 5770 –
The Secret of Unsinkable Optimism

Todays eMussar Lesson

eMussar – The Wisdom of Personal Growth
A daily inspirational, concise idea, with a suggested action.

THE FAITH OF KING DAVID/PSALMS 31:5-8

“Release me from this net which they have set for me, for You are my strength. I entrust my spirit into Your hand, You have freed me, HaShem – Almighty and Faithful G-d. I will greatly rejoice in Your kindness, for you have seen my distress, You know the trouble of my soul.”

When King David’s enemies surrounded him, they were certain that he would not escape their grasp. Despite the bleak situation, King David responded with a declaration of unwavering faith in HaShem, “Release me from this net which they have set for me, for You are my strength.”

What’s more, King David, when captured by his adversaries boldly declared, “You have freed me.” Since he placed his soul in the exclusive trust of HaShem, he was certain that HaShem, the Faithful, would rescue him! Even more, He was confident that HaShem, the Almighty, has the capability and power to deliver him.

In addition, King David said, “I will greatly rejoice in Your kindness.” That is, “After You save me from them in Your kindness, I will rejoice in Your kindness. And I will thank You for seeing my affliction – You turned to me to deliver me from mortal danger; You knew my soul was troubled – and in Your kindness You saved me.”

Amazingly, when King David’s life was at risk not only did he pray to HaShem and maintain steadfast faith that would HaShem deliver him – even more, he sang a victory song to HaShem! Anticipating his release his miraculous release, his heart filled with joyous thanks to HaShem for His care, kindness, and rescue.

May we hold our faith in HaShem, under all circumstances and trials. Undoubtedly, He will rescue us and we will sing to Him a joyous and triumphant song, “I will greatly rejoice in Your kindness, for you have seen my distress.”
[Based on the commentary of the Radak to Tehillim]

TODAY: Entrust your soul to HaShem’s care and know that He will surely rescue you.

By Rabbi Zvi Miller.

Teachings of the Sages 14th Tishrei 5770

 

Teachings of the Sages – 14th Tishrei, 5770

Two Tzadiks

ON GOOD AND EVIL

“Someone once came to Rav Pinchas of Koretz, zt”l, and asked a question that was obviously troubling him. ‘In Taanis 9, we find that Chazal [our Sages] cite the phrase … “you shall surely give a tenth of your earnings,” and reinterpret the second word as t’asheir instead of t’aser. This alters the meaning to, “Give a tenth, so that you will become wealthy.” Here we have an assurance that if we faithfully give away a tenth of our earnings, we will be successful financially. I have given ma’aser [a tithe] assiduously my whole life. Why, then, have I have not merited wealth?’ Rav Pinchas answered, ‘Let me tell you a true story about my neighbor that sheds light on your question. My neighbor is a wagon driver. He has good horses and he cares for them with great devotion, always providing them with the best food and shelter possible. As expected, the horses have always performed well, and they run with great endurance in all types of weather. One time, the horses failed to follow orders. Although they were hitched to their wagon and primed to travel, they simply refused to move. Since their owner knew that his animals lacked nothing, their obstinacy infuriated him. He figured that they needed to be taught a lesson. He began to beat them, all the while repeating his command that they start moving. An onlooker shouted at the wagon driver, “You are cruel to your animals! They have done nothing wrong! How can you expect them to move if you have the brakes engaged?” This is your problem too,’ explained the Rav. ‘Giving ma’aser can propel one’s financial success forward just as the horses hitched to the wagon will propel it toward its destination. However, if the brakes are engaged at the same time, the driver won’t get anywhere at all. If you are braking by failing to observe Shabbos and kashrus properly, the horses are not to blame for your inability to reach your goal. You must release the [brake] mechanism by doing teshuvah [repentance] and changing your behavior!’”*

THE POWER OF SPEECH – Guard your tongue

Never let a word of wickedness leave your mouth. Don’t ever say you will be wicked or commit a sin, even if you mean it as a joke and have no intention of carrying out your words.

The words themselves can be very damaging. They can compel you to fulfill them even though you did not mean them seriously.

This was what caused King Jehu’s downfall, because he said, “Ahab served Baal a little, but Jehu will serve him very much” ( II Kings 10:18 ). When King Jehu said these words, he had no intention of committing idolatry. He said them only to trick the Baal worshipers, as explained in the following verse. Yet these words were his downfall, because he later came to commit idolatry.

From this the Talmud learns that “a covenant is made with the lips” ( Sanhedrin 102a). You should therefore be very careful about what you say.

Likutey Moharan I, 34

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
“It is a great mitzvah to be happy.”
