Don’t Go Blaming HASHEM for Your Mistakes

We human beings are blind to our own flaws.

We tend to blame everyone but ourselves when things go wrong.

If you weigh four hundred pounds, and smoke two packs of cigarettes a day, don’t go blaming HASHEM when you get a heart attack.

 

You have Free will

If you decide not to get married—most likely you won’t.

When HASHEM determines a Bashert—you still have to do your part. If you decide you don’t want her/ him because you want someone:

  • Either Taller,
  • Or Smarter,
  • Or Shorter,
  • Or Thinner,
  • Or Heavier,
  • Or Richer,
  • Or more poor,
  • Or More simple,
  • Or More humorous, or more entertaining, or more engaging…

Then you can well pass her / him by

HASHEM doesn’t bind you to your bashert

To marry your bashert you have to go out to find her / him

And when you do, you have to step forward and marry that person.

If you don’t, you may well pass up your bashert.
