Torah and the World

More wisdom from's Daily Dose list:


Torah and the World

People think that G-d first made a world and then gave us instructions to follow, so we won't mess it up. The truth is, the instructions came first, and the world was designed as the venue to carry them out.

Therefore, to say that anything in the world could be an opposition to carrying out its Creator's will is an absurdity. There can be no opponents to the purpose of creation -- only meaningful challenges.
