Moshiach-Times: Future Lifestyles: 11 Nissan, 5745 · April 2, 1985

Maimonides concludes his code of law, the Mishneh Torah, by describing the era of Moshiach as a time of peace, abundance and enlightenment. All luxuries will be readily available, and yet they will be esteemed in man’s eyes as the dust. As such, we will devote ourselves totally to the study of Torah.

Maimonides concludes his code of law, the Mishneh Torah, by describing the era of Moshiach as a time of peace, abundance and enlightenment. All luxuries will be readily available, and yet they will be esteemed in man’s eyes as the dust. As such, we will devote ourselves totally to the study of Torah.

In exile, it is valid to serve G-d through mundane pursuits. In the era of Moshiach, however, there will be a higher standard. All people, including non-Jews, will devote themselves exclusively to the pursuit of G-dly knowledge.

In exile, one mainly studies Torah in order to know how to act. Those who reach a higher level, study in order to discover the infinite Divine knowledge. But in the era of Moshiach, all will study Torah for the sake of knowing G-d alone.

Perhaps anything that is readily available is esteemed lightly. I remember a story about a Taoist sage castigating the Emperor for failing to appreciate him with a parable about the virtues of the rooster. Reply
