Life should not be divided


"Our Sages regarded it as their duty not only to call us from the turmoil of life to a gathering to Gd but to approach us in life itself in order to make vivid for us the thought of Gd in life and to help us towards an active life in the service of Gd…

"The thoughts of Gd acquired in the Divine inner worship must be held on to firmly in active life, so that life be not divided for us into hours of prayer and hours of activity, standing before Gd in the former but in the latter not walking before Him. What would the Divine inward worship be worth if it did not return us to active life in a holier, stronger, more Gd-filled state, and if it did not transform our whole life into Divine service?"

(Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, Horeb 672-673)

Have a great day,
