Jewish History

On Adar 24, Czar Alexander I of Russia declared the Blood Libel -- the infamous accusation that Jews murdered Christian children to use their blood in the baking of matzah for Passover, for which thousands of Jews were massacred through the centuries -- to be false. Nevertheless, nearly a hundred years later the accusation was officially leveled against Mendel Beilis in Kiev.

Daily Thought

You have today’s meal before you on the table, and sit and fret over what will be tomorrow—and you claim you are “just being practical.”

This is not being practical; this is confusion.

Every day you are nourished straight from His full, open and overflowing hand. Everything in between—all your work and accounts and bills and receivables and clientele and prospects and investments—all is but a cloud of interface between His giving hand and your soul, an interface of no real substance which He bends and flexes at whim.

If so, if He is feeding you today, and He has fed you and provided all you need and more all these days, what concerns could you have about tomorrow? Is there then something that could stand in His way? Could He possibly have run out of means to provide for you?

Take your focus off the measured channels by which you receive, and place your eyes on the Infinite Source of Giving. The Source has no lack of channels.
