Pharaoh enslaved the Jews, but what can we learn from this lesson of slavery? A whole lot. Something I struggle with everyday is remaining present in all that I do. We don’t even realize how distracted we are with the minutia of our lives that we forget to remember G-d.Turns out the Jews in Egypt had the same problem too. They literally were slaves. Today we are slaves too: to all that distracts us from our true purpose and ability to serve G-d. The difference is that we make ourselves slaves. We CHOOSE this path. We choose to live connected to our phones, internet, TV, gossip, addictions, over indulging. Pretty crazy when you think about, isn’t it? Please leave your thoughts below.
