Daily Zohar # 3715 – Balak – He speaks softly to us
He opened and said, (Micah 6:5 )
“עַמִּי זְכָר נָא מַה יָּעַץ בָּלָק מֶלֶךְ מוֹאָב וּמֶה עָנָה אֹתוֹ בִּלְעָם בֶּן בְּעוֹר מִן הַשִּׁטִּים עַד הַגִּלְגָּל לְמַעַן דַּעַת צִדְקוֹת יְהוָה.”
“O My people, remember now What Balak king of Moab counseled, And what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, From Acacia Grove to Gilgal, That you may know the righteousness of YHVH.”
How merciful is the Holy One Blessed be He for his children? Even though they have sinned before him, he still speaks to them with love like a father speaks to his child. If the son sinned to his father, he gets beaten. If the beating didn’t make the child repent, he scolds the child with words. If the child still didn’t accept change, the father thinks that if I beat him again like before, his head would hurt, and the pain would be upon me. If he scolds him, the child would no longer be the same. What would I do? Instead, I will go and beg him and speak to him softly so he won’t be depressed.
The Zohar explains how the Holy One Blessed be He, the father, deals with Israel, the child, in the next study.
Friday would be a good day to make a ** Donation, especially if you didn’t donate in the past week. Giving on Friday, which is an aspect of Yessod, expands the vessel for the Light and honor of Shabbat.
** Your donation doesn’t have to be given to the same place every week. You can alternate or split your donation among those who benefit you spiritually.
