Dont lose sight because of the rules! - Mishpatim
All of us who have either gone through school,or are still going through school, need to realize that when the school puts rules in front of us it’s not to cause our downfall or for the administrators’ enjoyment. It is to prepare us to become better people.
In this week's Parsha, Parshas Mishpatim, many rules are set before our eyes. Those rules are a vehicle to change us from the slaves that we used to be to the royal nation that we are today.
We all have to realize that if we go against the guidelines that are meant to lead us to greatness, all we are doing is destroying ourselves bit by bit.
Hopefully we can pull ourselves through the test of life and come out strong with that bring Mashiach.
All the best
