Awe of God Toolbox: IX
Look at the bracha before reciting the Sh’ma: “Enlighten our eyes in your Torah, attach our hearts to your commandments, unify our hearts to love and fear your Name, so that we won’t be embarrassed eternally.” The next time you open up something to learn, stop for a second, and picture that this is something coming directly form the Creator of the world to you. Last week when we spoke of the Love of God Toolbox, we looked at learning as reading a love letter. With a love letter, you read it more than once, and you read it between the lines, etc. Now picture learning as receiving a letter from the IRS, or any other letter you associate with dread.
