Thought for the Day

The Path of the Humble

If we were truly humble, we would not be forever searching higher paths on the mountaintops. We would look in the simple places, in the practical things that need to be done.

True, all these places lie in a world of falsehood. With only a little more light, we would all realize that none of this is really necessary.

But the soul that knows its place knows that the great and lofty G‑d can most be found in the simple act of lending a hand or a comforting word in a world of falsehood and delusions.

The Jewish Woman
It is a special kindness that G-d made man to walk upright, so that he looks upon the Heavens; unlike beasts that go on all fours and see only the earth
