Shabbat evening Hello dear viewers.
In our parsha it is said “and you shall not bring an abomination into your house and you were a boycott like him” and Biar HaTzadik Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berditchov The abomination of the Lord is with all his heart. ” And isn’t things easy and material and what puts pride into his home like that, puts pride into his heart, all the more so.
An act in one follower who came to his rabbi, and his soul in his question would give him advice on how and how to fight the degree of pride that lurks within his heart.
Big question My son’s question – the rabbi replied – keep waiting until great deeds come in.
As he sat and waited, one person entered and asked for the rabbi’s request:
His house is engaged to a decent guy Ben Tovim, but he does not have the wedding needs that will cost at least a few hundred gold. The rabbi turned to the waiting follower: Please give this poor man three hundred gold pieces, he will go and raise his house at a good and successful time. I am poor – the follower replied – I do not have a worn penny.
After a few hours, the “teaching teacher” entered the city, a serious question came before him, a very difficult sentence that he could not solve. I want to hear the holy opinion of our Rabbi. His Excellency will ask his question from the student sitting with us here – the rabbi told him. Rabbi – the chassid apologized ashamed – still not full of belly in Shas and rulings and I can not order such a serious question.
Once again a little while passed, one of the great merchants was pushed in and out. Rabbeinu – said the merchant – I got involved in a lawsuit and things about a big business I had with a certain Fritz and I do not find my hands and feet, please teach me advice and resourcefulness how to get out of the strait. Please turn – said the rabbi to the embarrassed merchant – to this student sitting with us who will help you with good advice. I – sighs and groans the follower – I am not very familiar with the beings of the world and the paths of commerce are not clear to me.
At that moment the rabbi gave his eyes to the chassid, opened it and said to him: My dear and beloved, whoever is neither in wealth nor in the way of the land, neither Torah nor goods, should he advise against pride? I wonder !! King of wretchedness, what will he be proud of? …
Therefore many losses are caused to the man of pride, for our rabbis said in the Talmud (Pesachim Su 🙂 Anyone who is proud if he is wise his wisdom goes away from him, and if a prophet is his prophecy goes away from him. And they also said (B.B. Tzach.) That the words of pride are not accepted even of the people of his house. Therefore, what will man be proud of on earth in this lowly world?
