People invest money. G‑d invests people.
People invest money into whatever they think could give them
back more money.
G‑d invests people into those situations He knows could give
Him back better people.
So, this week, we read the story of G‑d investing His people
into slavery in Egypt.
Definitely a high-risk investment. But, without it, there
would be no Torah, no eternal Jewish Nation, no concept of freedom or human
dignity in our world.
Good investors study
good, successful investments. That’s another good reason to read this week’s parshah and all the
wisdom our sages have taught on it. And then to apply that wisdom to our lives.
Let me know what you gained this week from the situation G‑d
has invested you in. Is He turning a profit?
