Hineni (Here I Am)


Jun 12, 2017

The lesson that we learn from this week’s Torah portion is simple. If you think you can you will and if you think you can’t then you won’t. It’s all about attitude. In this week’s Torah portion, Moses chooses twelve men to go to the Promised Land to see whether it is conquerable and inhabitable. Ten of the men come back saying that it’s not possible to conquer the land because they perceive that giants live there. Two of the men, Joshua and Caleb, come back saying, “We can do it”. They are ready to fight. The ten men who lack courage saw themselves as very small, saying they are as “grasshoppers” in the eyes of the inhabitants of the land, and in their own eyes as well. They lacked the self-confidence it takes to do what is required and they lacked faith in God. And therefore condemned the rest of the Israelites to wander in the desert for 40 years. If you see failure everywhere you will fail. Think positively, believe that you can and you will and can conquer whatever comes your way.
