“A still small voice.”
– 1 Kings 19:12
Too often, the weekday pace consumes the passage of time, without providing nourishment for the soul. Yet, initiative needs to be taken, in order to preserve the sanctity of the soul, even within the framework of mundane activities. As we prepare for the new week ahead of us, let us keep this in mind; and, try to find solace, within the midst of the daily grind.
“And He said: ‘Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the L-RD.’ And, behold, the L-RD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the L-RD; but the L-RD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake; but the L-RD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire; but the L-RD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.”
– 1 Kings 19:11-12, JPS 1917 Tanach
