As equals, all humans must fully treat others as we wish to be treated. Charity, kindness and justice demand we rise above personal or selfish emotions and recognize that God made others as He made ourselves. Doing so creates harmony, and earns His kindness to us.
RACISM: A LIE
Man descends from Adam. Black/white twins unveil the lie of racism. Bible denounces it: Moses’ wife was black, our kings married Egyptians and Messiah descends from Moab. “Better is the day of death than the day of birth” (Eccl. 7:1). Birth doesn’t define us, how we live does.
Man is greatly insecure, but reality is greater. Man seeks security about his future accepting fallacies like astrology, amulets, omens, horoscopes and others. God prohibited such practices precisely because they are false. God is more powerful than false notions. Rely on Him alone.
Many think wealth and success secure happiness, but Torah teaches that it stems from study. When pursuing wisdom, one is most happy. The cherubs (childlike figurines) over the Ark (containing Torah) teach that Torah offers childlike amazement at every turn.
Don’t seek approval over truth. Torah says, “What can man do to me?” (Psalms 56:5). “Don't fear man” (Deut. 1:17). “Desist from man whose soul is in his nostrils, for what is he considered?” (Isaiah 2:22). Mortal attention is irrelevant. Following God earns all goodness.
