What We Are Not Telling You! - Behar/Bechukosai
Imagine being told to do something even if the projected outcome doesn't make sense to you. Take learning an instrument for instance. In the beginning, all that the teacher wants is for you to practice scales. This is done with the knowledge that one day you will master that and move on to the next step.
In this week's parsha, Behar-Bechukosai, Moshe explains to the Jewish people that during the seventh year all work on the land should stop. One may ask why do such a thing? The answer to this is the same as with an instrument. Just because we don't see the answers now doesn't mean we won't see the answers in the future.
What lesson could we take from this? Sometimes, all it takes is the upgrade of one quality to boost the entire person. For example, something we can all work on this week is the mitzvah of ahavas yisrael. Furthermore, as we work on ahavas yisrael within as a nation, Hashem will take us all out of golus as a nation with the coming of Moshiach.
All the best
