19 Nisan 5772
Day Four of the Omer
To be Egypt's "whore" in degradation or Hashem's "wife" in holy covenant? Our "freedom" provides us this choice. When put this way, it's a no-brainer, right? Then why do so many of us choose wrongly?
If you are living outside the Land of Israel, you are essentially living in "Egypt." If you say you "can't" come to Eretz Yisrael, then you are nothing more than a slave to Egypt. A free man can choose where he goes. Hashem already set you free from Egypt. Now, it's time you set yourself free. Loosen the shackles in your own mind. Your faith and trust in Hashem is only limited by your own fears of going free and of taking responsibility for your own future.
But, you'd better move fast. We're crossing the Sea day after tomorrow!
