The Humble Prayer of Moshe – Todays eMussar Lesson 19th Tishrei 5770

Todays eMussar Lesson

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

PARSHA INSIGHTS\THE SAGES OF MUSSAR

When Moshe prayed to be allowed to enter the land of Israel, he did not base his pleas on his merits. Rather, he asked for a “free gift”. Yet, a gift, by definition, is free. If so, what message is conveyed in the phraseology a “free gift”?

There are various categories of remuneration and compensation. Payment is an obligation that rests upon an employer to pay his employee. Reward, on the other hand, implies a non-mandatory payment. For instance, if someone returns a wallet that he found, it would be a nice gesture for the owner to reward him for his kind efforts. However, he is under no liability to compensate the finder because the finder voluntarily returned the wallet.

In addition, an employee has no claim to any remuneration beyond his fixed salary. For instance, when a general wins a war, there is no obligation on the king to pay him more than his predetermined salary. On the other hand, if he loses the war, he might be reprimanded by the king for inefficiency. If the king is pleased with his general’s daring victory he might want to give him a gift as a token of appreciation. While in times of peace, when the general does not actively fight a war, a gift from the king would be undeserved or a “free gift”.

In conclusion there are three categories of non-mandatory payment: 1) a reward for a voluntary good deed, 2) a gift as a bonus for doing exceptional work, 3) a free, undeserved gift.

Although Moshe was the greatest of all the Jews, he was the humblest man on the face of the earth. Despite all of his incomparable accomplishments, he considered himself devoid of merits. Therefore, he asked HaShem for a “free gift”. In Moshe’s humble perception of himself; he did not assume that he was entitled to any “reward” or “bonus”. The only thing he could hope for was a free gift from HaShem.

Our Sages teach us that humility is the most precious attribute. To consider oneself empty of merit before Hashem is the state of true humility. Let us follow in the footsteps of our master and teacher, Moshe Rabenu and aspire to the path of humility.
[Based on the K’sav Sefer, Parshas Devarim]

TODAY: When you pray, ask HaShem to grant your request as a free gift.

By Rabbi Zvi Miller.

THE POWER OF SPEECH – The hammer

A certain king sent his son far away to study. The son eventually returned to the king’s palace fully versed in all the arts and sciences. One day the king told his son to take a particular stone that was as big as a millstone and bring it up to the top floor of the palace. But the stone was so heavy that the prince could not even lift it up. He was very upset that he could not fulfill his father’s wish.

Eventually the king said to his son, “Did you really imagine that I meant you to do the impossible and carry the stone just as it is up there? Even with all your wisdom, how were you supposed to do such a thing? That was not what I meant. I wanted you to take a big hammer and smash the stone into little pieces. This is how you will be able to bring it up to the top floor.”

In the same way, G-d commands us to “lift our heart with our hands up to G-d in the heavens” (Lamentations 3:41 ) . Our heart is a “heart of stone” (Ezekiel 36:26) , a very heavy stone. There is no possible way to raise it to G-d except by taking a hammer and breaking and smashing the heart of stone.

The “hammer” is speech!

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

Azamra means “I will sing” (Psalms 146:2)

And the way to sing the song of joy is by seeking the good in all people, especially in ourselves. Each good point is one more note in the song of life!
