Question 20: How am I better than I was last year, last month, last week?
Rabbi Schwartz :
is our great teacher. One of the first questions a future employer asks
one who applies for a job is, 'Do you have work experience?' He knows
that having 'done' it is always better than never having done it. As
such, in terms of life wisdom and skill, we may well have more now,
than we had last year, last month and last week.
is though, what have we done with these lessons - how have we applied
them to our lives. Being more doesn't depend only on receiving more and
having more. Rather, we are more, only if we strive to do more and be
more - and in the right direction.
Potentially, we are better
than we were last year, last month, last week, but we must continue
asking, 'Am I really improving'. This question is not as simple as it
seems. But, if we keep asking it, we will remember that we need always
to grow and not squander life's golden opportunities.
