Devarim: Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22

Moses reviews God’s sending the Israelites away from Sinai and out on their journey.

Tuesday, July 17, 2018 – 5 Av 5778

Devarim: Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22

Moses reminds the people that it is God who has gone before them, fought for them, carried them, guided them on their journey.

Wednesday, July 18, 2018 – 6 Av 5778

Devarim: Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22

Put the power of your soul into moving forward toward your destiny.  Self-reproach is wasteful and damages your spirit.  It is important to stop blaming yourself or feeling embarrassed or ashamed of past mistakes and failures, and to return to your true nature.  (Compassion, p. 136)
