Who….or what...is God?
Living in this world does require us to
keep our eyes and ears open, especially to note whether people are acting with
generosity or selfishness, love or hatred, compassion or cold-heartedness. That is why Judaism demands that
when we see injustice in the world, we must give voice to the teachings about
God that have guided our heritage throughout the ages. It is we who are God’s eyes, ears,
hands and heart to be sure that people approach one another with kindness,
consideration, grace and goodness.
People in need, those whose rights are denied, those who need hope
restored, need us to bring God’s compassion to their lives. So may we do!
