Many times, although I wish to plan every step of my life, I have no idea what my next step is going to be. The idea that pushes me forward is that the future seems hidden and, if I keep moving forward, my plans will become revealed.
In this week’s parsha, we continue with the journey of Yosef. Yosef was considered to be a hidden person. For example Yosef knew exactly who the brothers were, yet they knew nothing in return.
From the perspective of Yehudah or the other brothers, they saw a powerful king. They thought that he didn’t care whether they lived or died when, really, he cared so deeply that he cried multiple times. You may think that Hashem doesn't care about you yet the exact opposite is true. Hashem, our Father, cares deeply.
With this thought in mind, let's take this week as an opportunity to overcome the challenges and bring moshiach closer!
All the best
