Where Is The Gray Area?

Thursday, 1 August, 2013 - 12:07 pm

 See, I give you today the blessing and the curse

Deuteronomy 11:2

As I read this verse, I wondered. Where is the gray area? Blessing and curse; no middle ground?

I know that one of the basic principals of Jewish life is that we have free choice.

I know we are responsible for our actions, but is it one or the other? Is it blessing or curse?

I haven't come to a perfect conclusion just yet. Trying to understand  That brought me to this article asking "Can a curse come from G-d".

Essentially, blessing = unity,  curse = separation. There is one question to ask, is this going to bring people, life, community, and G-d into our life? Will this bring unity? 

What do you think? (please reply to give me your thoughts on this)
