Servant of G-d

Rebbe Nachman asks the question: Are we G-d’s servant or people’s servant? There is no in between. Everybody is somebody’s servant. Are you G-d’s servant? If you are, then you are the freest person in the world because you know exactly what is right. If you really know what is right, then you don’t listen to anybody, just what your soul tells you is right. The Gemara says that the freest person is the one who is G-d’s servant. If you are man’s servant, then you are a slave. If you are G-d’s servant, you are completely free, really, really free.

Rebbe Nachman says, what is it to be in exile? To be in exile means you know everything, but you don’t know it clearly. And to be free means it is shining, it’s really shining.



Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

poor man came to the house of an elderly couple. Unfortunately they had nothing in the house to give him except an old piece of fish “from before the time of Noah’s Ark and the flood.” Out of desperation, they served him this fish and the next thing they knew he had to be rushed to the hospital. The elderly couple, of course, accompanied him to the hospital but, unfortunately, watched him die in front of their eyes.

At the funeral the elderly woman was crying uncontrollably and her husband was having a hard time trying to console her. She was hysterically screaming, “The fish killed him, the fish killed him.”

The husband who couldn’t stand to see his wife in such a state comforted her and said, “My darling, it’s really not that bad. We had the merit of fulfilling three good deeds: Welcoming guests, visiting the sick, and escorting the deceased!”
