You Never Know

    by Reb Gutman Locks
       You Never Know

 

       Our deeds are like seeds that we plant and you never know how far they might grow.

     The man in the picture was visiting from America. He came up to me during the holiday and said, "You changed my nephew's life. Eight months ago, you put tefillin on him and sent him to the Kotel to say some special prayers. I don't know what you told him to do, but he is a different person now. He believes and acts differently. Not only that, but he is a teacher in a Reform Temple and now he is teaching those children to do the same thing."

     This is what I tell them: "The mitzvah opens the gate to Heaven. Talk to G-d in your heart. Picture everyone you love one at a time with light on their faces and smiling and ask G-d to bless them. Thank Him for all the good He has given you. Ask Him to guide you in life. Take a couple of minutes and talk to G-d…"

     What a blessing it is to be able to reach those young Jewish children who are, at best, learning the history of the Jewish people in their Reform school and showing them that they can talk to G-d in their hearts.
