Parsha Tidbit from Bardichev: Mikeitz
PARSHAS MIKETZ SHABBOS CHANUKKA
This week's Parsha has a terrific lesson that we can apply to our struggle and to our lives.
We find that when Yosef Hatzaddik speaks to Pharo
He speaks with tremendous humility
Pharo tells him "I hear you can decipher dreams"
Yosef says "b'laadie" it is not from me what Hashem puts into my mouth that's what I will say
HELLO, IS THIS THE SAME YOSEF? THE YOSEF FROM LAST WEEK'S PARSHA??
When Yosef was enticed by the "Potefera" he says:
"THERE IS NO ONE GREATER IN THE HOUSE THAN ME"
Is this the same Yosef??
The Terertz is...
Before a nisayon one must muster up ALL his ego and say THE WORLD WAS CREATED FOR ME!!
One of the greatest tricks of the YH is to convince us that our existence is insignificant. Therefore what's the big deal to sin.
Second thing he does, he downplays the sin. Acchh, it's just a small aveirahleh.
At that point Yosef says "Aino Gadol Babaiyis yoser mimeni" and he says Vi-aych e'eseh haraah hagdolah!
That is how Yosef talks to the YH. that's called Vayigbeh Libo bidarkei Hashem.
A vayigba libo can only come from a true anav!
