we need a baseline

Thursday, 4 April, 2019 - 12:31 pm

We will first get a baseline sample. Only then will you drink the liquid sugar, and we will take an additional sample every hour for 3 hours. Your test results will be available in approximately one week. That is how the technician explained the process as we were testing one of our children for lactose intolerance.

It got me thinking. Often, when we talk about spiritual growth, we miss the first step - what is our baseline? Where are we spiritually? Only then can we test to see if there are things that we need to improve, if there are things we need to be intolerant of etc.

How does one get a baseline? You get a technician; find a friend and ask him to help you identify where you are at spiritually, and then have them help you guide yourself on your journey.

Do not measure every minute. After a week, see if you made advancement on the journey, ask the friend how you are progressing.

Keep moving forward in the right direction! Perhaps, then, by the time Passover comes (in two weeks), we will be ready to be freed from our limitations.

Have a good Shabbos,
