Daily Thought

Two ways you could write your life:

“I am so small, and I make such stupid messes that even if the Creator of this magnificent universe had some plan for me, by now He must have given up. So I do too.”

Or:

“I am so small, and I make such stupid messes, yet nevertheless the Creator of this magnificent universe will not let go of His belief in me.”

“And so neither will I.”

Torat Menachem 5742, vol. 3, pg. 1522. Ibid 5747 vol. 4 pg. 261.
