Shavuous is almost here! Chodesh Tov!
THE POWER OF PEACE
(HASHEM TOLD MOSHE) "WHEN THE MEMBERS OF THE TRIBE OF LEVI APPROACH THE HOLIEST OF THE HOLY THINGS, AARON AND HIS SONS MUST (FIRST)COME AND APPOINT EACH MAN TO HIS TASK"
Oftentimes, when we strive to reach our spiritual potential, others become hostile to us, or we are plagued by self doubt. The Torah teaches us here, that in those moments don't go to battle, rather, use the power of Aharon, the peacemaker, and use our loving kindness to neutralize or eliminate the negativity.
(Taken from Daily Wisdom pg 280- words from Lubavitcher Rebbe)
