The Wisdom of the IDF ✡ “Mighty in Strength” – ISRAEL365

He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength; who hath hardened himself against Him, and prospered?

חֲכַם לֵבָב וְאַמִּיץ כֹּחַ מִי הִקְשָׁה אֵלָיו וַיִּשְׁלָם

איוב ט:ד

kha-KHAM lay-VAV v’-a-MEETZ KO-akh mee hik-SHAH ay-LAV va-yish-LAM

Today’s Israel Inspiration

The words in this verse, translated as “wise in heart,” are understood by the Sages as “wise about hearts,” or “wise about innermost thoughts.” This means that God knows what is in man’s hearts and judges accordingly. While man has the capacity to judge his fellow only by what is obvious to the human eye, the Lord knows what is really in a person’s heart. It is man’s challenge to behave like God and, instead of making assumptions solely by what meets the eye, understand that there is more in a person’s heart that might not be apparent from the outside. We are therefore called on to judge others favorably by always giving them the benefit of the doubt. As they train to gain the skills necessary to protect the Holy Land and her people, the IDF must also learn to judge with wisdom who is a threat and who is a friend. This is tremendously difficult and requires deeply refined skills and intellect to carry out the job.

My wife and I pray for the peace of Israel and Jerusalem and also for the world. I am asking for the prayers of the Jewish people for the flooding that is going on in Louisiana and for us, we are the only family that is left on the road of our community. I pray, as does my wife, that God will see us through this flooding of our home. I hope you understand. We are not rich or wealthy people. Please remember us in your prayers.
