Royal Messages: Active Participants
I said, with what can the King of Kings be blessed and praised? Only when we accept Him as King and Master. (Midrash Rabbah, Vayigash) “If we do not coronate Him as King on this world, His Kingdom in heaven is weakened.” (Midrash Zutah, Shir Hashirim 1:1)
We are active participants in God’s coronation as King on Rosh Hashanah. We are not simply observers. We must actively make Him our King. By doing so we enhance His rule in the heavens as well. Our active participation is considered His blessing and praise.
