Service and Comfort Zone

Thursday, 10 January, 2013 - 8:07 am

 “Let my people go…” – it’s an inspirational message. There are those who say, that this quote from the Torah was the inspiration for the “abolitionist movement”. Looking at the end of that same verse it says “so that they may serve Me”.

Moses defined the goal of freedom from Egypt, in order to serve G-d. This is mentioned again later, as G-d himself says later “For the Children of Israel are My servants”.

What is service of G-d?

Serving G-d is more following the commandments of the Torah. That is being a slave to G-d. Serving G-d is doing something outside of your comfort zone. Its making the effort to do something that G-d wants, because that is what He wants.

Here is a link to a story that illustrates this point.

Have a good Shabbos and please join us 9:30am for a Rosh Chodesh – Shabbos service.

Rabbi Kushi Schusterman
