Appreciation

Wednesday, 27 October, 2010 - 12:00 pm

 As human beings we must show appreciation. When we receive positive feedback it helps us to continue to do the good which we have done. When we are appreciated, we feel good. When we let others know that we are grateful for what has been done for us, we make them feel good too.

 

This week’s Torah portion begins with G-d revealing himself to Abraham in the plains of Mamre. Why in Mamre’s territory? Because Mamre was the one who counseled Abraham to do the circumcision. G-d showed his appreciation for this by revealing himself in “Mamre’s territory”.

So let us ask ourselves how often do we show our children how much we appreciate them and the things they say or do? How often do we share with our spouse/friend/neighbor how their actions make us happy?

Let us all appreciate one more thing this week that until now we have taken for granted. A way to appreciate “it” is to take notice of it and to express our gratitude.

Someone made the effort to share with me this week that they appreciate my weekly e-mail (even though I sometimes make mistakes, ie last week I wrote 700 feet instead of 700 meters). I’d like to thank you for taking your time to read my weekly e-mail and sending your feedback, I appreciate it.

Shabbat Shalom!

Rabbi Kushi Schusterman
