Dear Ones Ha Torah Perik 44 continues with the story of Yoseif and his brothers. Yoseif was determined to try his brothers. He had money placed in their sacks on there first departure. He had his chosen goblet placed in Benjamin's sack on there second departure.
Our Creator uses our spouse, our children, our grand children, our siblings and our relatives to smooth our rough edges.
What shall we say to [Yoseif] my master? What can we speak? How can we justify ourselves? G-d [the Judge] has found the iniquity of your servants... Yehudah explains... He requests a favor... 'let me be a slave to my master instead of the lad.' Let me take his place. Let the lad go home to his father...
The discussion focuses on issues we face. Everyone has problems. The rich have problems. the wise have problems. The pretty and the beautiful have problems. Everyone has problems. Those who love and believe in the Torah of HaShem have an answer for every problem. Delight in the Torah of HaShem. Meditate in the Torah of HaShem. Nothing helps like Prayer and Ha Torah...
Blessings and peace,
