Lessons from Avraham

No one could sway or confuse our forefather, Avraham. That’s why he was called HaIvri, which means the one from the other side of the river, for he was on one side and the entire world was on the other side, so to speak. The key to our happiness and sense of fulfillment is our ability to turn away from conformity with social norms that have nothing to do with truth. Knowing the truth gives a person confidence, conviction and inner strength – three valuable tools lacking in a conformist.

These daily lifts are inspired by Jonny Chippeck and dedicated to his ‘refuah shleimah’. Get well soon Jonny!

Please step up to the plate and contribute your own small nugget of Torah by sending back to me at terence@speedquote.net. The more people we have contributing, the higher this daily lift will go. Keep them coming.
