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

A young man learning in Yeshiva is engaged to a wonderful young lady from wealthy home. The father is upset. How is this guy going to make a living? So he takes him into his office to interview him while the mother and the future bride wait nervously outside. The father says, “How do you intend to make a living?” “G-d will provide,” answers the young man. “Well, my daughter’s needs are great; she was brought up that way.” “G-d will provide,” comes the reply. “How about a house? She needs a big house.” “G-d will provide.””How about clothes? She’s used to expensive, elegant dressing.” “G-d will provide.” The father comes out of the interview and the mother and daughter anxiously inquire, “So what do you think?” “Why, he’s a very fine young man. He thinks I’m G-d!”
