Fire up your heart! - Tzav
Was there ever a time when you didn't see a family member or friend for a long time and suddenly one day you saw them?
When a person sees a friend who he hasn't seen in a long time, he is usually very happy and the love in his heart for a friend is very strong. When a person sees a random yiddel on the street he doesn't feel the same, why?
In this weeks parsha we talk about how the fire on the mizbe'ach (altar) was always burning. The meforshim say the reason why. The mizbe'ach (alter) is compared to a heart and the fire of the heart doesn't burn out. The fire of the heart is compared to love. Love of HASHEM which also covers love of a fellow Jew, especially family. Lets try to make a effort in the future to show the love to people even random strangers.
That should help re unite all yidden from all corners of the world and bring us together with the coming of Moshiach NOW!
All the best
