Choose life!

Most of us envision Hashem opening His three books, evaluating our deeds and writing us in, hopefully, in the Book of Life. But the Nesivos Shalom says that it is we who are inscribing ourselves in the Book.In

In the Torah, Hashem tells us “Behold, I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil…You shall choose life, so that you and your offspring shall live.”

Being written in the Book of Life means that we aspire to a true life. A life filled with the purpose of doing Hashem’s will through accepting His will. We must also attempt to take real steps towards growth, and before every act we are about to do, and as we plan how to go about it, we must ask ourselves: Is this Hashem’s will or not?

We may have made many mistakes this year but our desire for a fuller spiritual life, the desire to be counted among the tzadikkim is the reason why Hashem will consider us as such in essence. We are where our heart is, and that is where we will be written.

To be considered alive we must be connected to the Source of life, for life can only be life if lived with Hashem.
