the beauty of the seventh day

the seventh day approaches,

ready to caress us once again in her loving embrace.

but have you ever wondered,

why did it take g-d 7 WHOLE DAYS to make the world?

I mean he’s all-powerful,

all-seeing,

he’s-  well, g-d.

why couldn’t he have just made the world in  a minute or a second?

why did it take him 7 days to make it?

because he wanted to teach us a very important lesson.

g-d wanted to teach us that things take time.

which,especially in the 21st century is a very important thing for us to know.

the world wasn’t built in a second,

friendships are not built in a second,

families are not built in a second,

they are not built in a day,

or even a year.

things truly worth having,

they take time.

and g-d was willing to risk people doubting  his power,

just to teach us that.

    I heard it on a tape by Rabbi Jonathan Rietti
    and he said it so eloquently that i felt i just had to repeat it.

    wonderful speaker,by the way.

    did you ever hear him speak?

    Wow, that’s really nice.
    Yes, I’ve heard him speak before and I love everything I’ve heard from him! He’s a brilliant speaker and expounds on things in such a deep way! I like the way many times he explains things with concepts of remazim-hints or gematrias-numerical values of numbers and words corresponding to different messages we can take out of them.

    Thanks for passing this on!
