Trusting others! - Miketz
There was a incident that i heard a few months ago as follows. Their was a kid who decided to stand straight and fall fully backwards into his brothers hands, i am not going to say what happened afterwards because it doesn't matter. But the amount of trust that one of the brothers had on his other brother that he fell and still didn't fall to the floor is very impressive.
This weeks parsha is pashas miketz, is one of the three parshsiyos of yosef. Yosef has had many struggles and this week he gets thrown into jail. In jail he meets the butler and the baker, two people who work for Pharaoh. He explains their scary dreams and then later they get let out of jail. He tells them to ask Pharaoh to let him out. Over a while the butler and baker forget about yosef. At this point yosef turns to his father in heaven and ask for his redeeming. Their is a commentary that says that because yosef didn't trust in HASHEM the whole time and he trusted the butler and baker it took a lot longer. Once Yosef decided to trust HASHEM he got let out of jail and got let up the ranks of Pharaoh
Trust is a very big thing in life and until you get it you don't get very far, i hope that every person is trusted to a fair share and so to trust other people that same way.
Lets have more trust in hashem that he will bring mashiach now!
All the best Avroham Y Ross
