Are you a grasshopper?
God is with us.
So who can be against us?
We seal our own doom with the words that come out of our mouths.
We curse ourselves, and neglect to bless instead.
I am writing this the week preceding Tisha B’Av.
It is time to reflect upon our attitudes toward God, others and ourselves.
It is a time to fast and pray, and to cleanse ourselves of wrong thinking.
It is also a time to pray for the people of Israel, and their protection.
As we treat Israel, so God will treat us.
If we don’t learn the lesson of Tisha B’Av, it will happen to us.
