Ma Zeh b'Yodecho?

by Yaakov from GYE (See all authors)

Sometimes our falls stem from feelings of worthlessness. We say to ourselves, "I'm a nobody anyway, what's the difference if I fall?"

We must remember how important each of us is! If you weren't needed, you wouldn't have been created. Our job is to figure out is for WHAT we are needed.

When Moshe Rabbeinu didn't feel worthy or able to take the Yidden out of Mitzrayim, Hashem said to him: מזה בידך? What's that in your hand? Moshe answered מטה (a stick), and Hashem told him to throw it down and it turned into a snake!

Hashem asks each and every one of us, מזה בידך? What's in your hands? What's your story? What difference can you make in the world? Do you even know what you are holding; what powerful strengths you possess? It may look like a plain stick, but it can become a key to redeeming the Jewish people one day!

Each of us has a hidden potential to make a MAJOR difference in the world. But we can't actualize it unless we believe in ourselves and in our self-worth!
