Elul 23, 5770- Teshuvah Day 23 (9/2/10)

Posted: September 3, 2010 in Teshuvah 40 Day Devotional

What we say reveal our heart.

What we say and how we say it is who we are. Angry, hurtful words define an angry, hurtful person. Kind, compassionate words define a kind, considerate person (Chofetz Chaim, page xxi) But more than anything, words are the sole medium through which the Jew fulfills the purpose for which he was created – to communicate Hashem’s greatness and presence in this world. (page xxii)

Today is understood to be the first  day of Creation that God said “Light Be!”.  This brought the creating Spirit  presence back into the earth. We also are created to create with our words.

This 40 days of Turning Back to God (Teshuvah), the most important thing we can do is judge everything we say according to the royal law of love. I Cor 13:4-7, everything.  But don’t walk around not saying anything, speak praises unto God where ever you are, bringing light into this dark world.

    thank you for another reminder. I can forget.

    coming from the most negative family who refuse to really hear about Light to this day. Drain joy right out of me. One step forward and three steps backward with ‘mother’…..

      It is the little foxes that spoil the vine, and little comments that slip out of our mouth we don’t notice that spoil God’s perfect plan for our life. Love never fails. I will lift you up as your name comes before me in prayer. Blessings.
