The Torah tells us that because man was created in G-d’s image, every human being has nearly limitless potential for greatness. But that potential comes with a dangerous flip-side: arrogance. The very G-dly nature that allows us to perfect ourselves can also delude us into thinking that our greatness is our own doing. And when we buy into that delusion, we give ourselves license to disobey HASHEM.
Clearly, it’s a tricky balance to strike. Humans have a genuine potential for greatness. So how can we avoid the pitfall of arrogance and accept the humble position of servant to the Master?
This Shmuz pinpoints the secret to achieving greatness while maintaining an attitude of humility.
