A Trust Beyond Faith

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called “A Trust Beyond Faith.”

When we have faith in G-d, it generally means that we believe that He created us and that He is the Master of the Universe. However, faith does not necessarily imply trust. Trust in G-d means that we believe that He not only created us, but that He sustains us and that there is Divine Providence in this world. When we trust in G-d, we believe that G-d is close to us and has a personal relationship with each and every one of us, and actually to everything in the world.

We all need to leave our egos at the door! No matter how strong or smart that we think we are, even the little grass above us (or above our graves) is greater than us. Certainly, G-d Almighty who is our creator and our sustainer, all-knowing and all-powerful, He is over us and watches over us in better times as well as those that are perhaps more challenging, but always we trust, for the good!

Lawyer or Liar

Funny shirt this guy chooses to wear:

Trust me I’m a lawyer.

My dad used to joke:

Not a lawyer, a liar! 

I think he was referring to the ones who knowingly and dishonestly defend guilty violent criminals. 

But like with all people, some people are good and some are not so good.  😉
