MESSAGE FROM RABBI LOEWY:

 Parshas: BALAK

 

Parshas Balak contains a fascinating story with Bilaam who had incredible strength with his words and anybody he blessed was blessed and anybody he cursed was cursed. Bilaam was asked to use this power against the Jews. He decided to go along on the journey and all of the sudden the unspeakable occurred. His donkey stopped and began to have a conversation with him! Obviously, G-d was trying to convey an important message to Bilaam. Perhaps Bilaam should have thought where his strength in speech came from. The same G-d who gave him this power allowed a donkey to speak which never happened in history. How could such a wise individual like Bilaam not see this open message from G-d and stop what he was doing? Rabbi Yissocher Frand points out from this episode a pivotal lesson for each and every one of us. When there is a personal desire involved (honor, gain, etc.) a person can be totally blinded and not even see open messages. Bilaam wanted to exercise his power and show it off. He could not focus on anything else other than getting himself this prestige. We must all exercise caution in these areas and be open to the “divine winks” of G-d.

 

     Have a Wonderful Shabbos!
