The Right to be Afraid

When one reads about the wrath of G-d in the story of the Meraglim, the spies sent to scout the Land of Israel, one finds that to trust in G-d, to be confident in his care for us, to be optimistic,   is no privilege, not something we may or may not do, but an obligation.

The spies told the whole truth, but they interpreted it in a way that had no faith in it, in a way which demoralized themselves and the People.

Fear is there, and it’s natural to be afraid sometimes. The question is what we do about it, and Faith is our guide.

If you find these Divrey Torah worthy – share them with others!
