I have a younger brother who never gives up, here is the story. I happen to own an electric scooter and when I go to Massachusetts it’s my transportation. One night I was about ready to leave to mincha and he decided he was coming. I told him no because it’s not too safe to have a three year old on an electric scooter with no helmet. You probably can imagine what happened. We went back and forth until I took the upper hand and finally left to my destination.
In this week’s parsha a similar thing happens. Moshe has a very big desire to go into eretz yisrael (to tell you the truth so would anybody else). HASHEM says forbade him and said don’t talk to me about this matter again, which leads to yehoshua leading the Jewish nation into eretz yisrael.
We all have our desires and what we want to do, let’s try putting them into affect we all know that mashiach should be here and that’s a desire so let’s act like we want him and have an awesome shabbos. In order to actually bring Moshe into the land flowing with milk and honey.
All the best
