The choice is ours


"“The choice is given”: This teaches that a choice is given to people to perform good or evil. Further, it is written, ‘And you shall choose life,’ and we do not tell a person, ‘Choose,’ unless he has the option of choosing. We learn that the choice is in his hands."

(Comment of Rabbeinu Meshulam ben Klonymus to Pirkei Avot 3:15, cited in Aruch סעד)

Have a great day,
