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.

Reshimat Nefesh Hashefalah, cited and elucidated in Likkutei Sichot, vol. 16, pp. 41ff.

From the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory; words and condensation by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman. To order Rabbi Freeman’s book, Bringing Heaven Down to Earth, click here.
