Living and Growing: 20 Menachem-Av, 5745 • August 7, 1985

Every morning, we thank G-d for giving us life. But there are many different levels of life. Physical growth and energy are much more apparent during childhood than in adulthood. Since body and soul are closely connected, clearly, a child’s soul, as well, develops rapidly during the formative years.
Lubavitcher Rebbe
Living and Growing
20 Menachem-Av, 5745 • August 7, 1985
Disc 12, Program 46

Event Date: 20 Av 5745 - August 07, 1985

Every morning, we thank G-d for giving us life. But there are many different levels of life. Physical growth and energy are much more apparent during childhood than in adulthood. Since body and soul are closely connected, clearly, a child’s soul, as well, develops rapidly during the formative years.

Many children take advantage of the summer by going to camp where they absorb the “Torah of Life.” They should spread the message that every Jew must be “alive.” Children are a great inspiration for this, since, by nature, they cannot rest and do not allow their parents or teachers to rest either. They constantly demand new experiences and challenges.

When they return home, the campers will be impervious to negative influences in the public domain. They will even be able to transform their surroundings into a G-dly place.

yes daily deeds for empowering the child i was beat up and abused by a mother who told me that she never wanted kids, she doesn't say 'i love you' unless she really means it -never said it to me but once and then she said 'you're not welcome in my home and we're like oil and water' - 2 yrs ago i stopped having a lifetime of recurring nightmares when a psychologist told me she thinks i evidence proof of having been hurt by my mom pre verbal - i said 'she smothered me as an infant at 5 mos ' and haven't had the dreams at all and it took 53 yrs to break through my denial.
Who could not love their own child? I love all children. And I bless them as they bless my world. The Rebbe was showing how important it is to be sure not to forget to entertain strangers...and he sure knew about angels. Reply

Motivation This is a great reminder, even for myself, to do more!!! I am always atounded by the level of day-to-day committment The Rebbe put(s) forth. Anyone reading about his efforts will be impressed, not only with his caring and knowledge, but his continuous drive. This short video clip of The Rebbe has even helped me to understand my own parents better, who are constantly going! I am inspired to make more efforts! Reply
