Daily Torah Thought - 4/3


A strong view of Divine control:

"One must know that the events which occur to people are of two types: One are goal events, and the other are means events.

"'Goal events' are events which are decreed upon a person, because they are appropriate for him for one of the reasons discussed elsewhere in this book.

"'Means events' are events which occur to a person so that, via these steps, another event will occur which is appropriate for him..."

(R' Moshe Chaim Luzzatto, Derech HaShem, 2:3)

Have a great day,
