Seven Haftarot of Nechama-Comforting God
God Himself feels the pain experienced by every one of His children. The comfort of God depends upon the comfort granted His children. During the Days of Awe we pray, “Remember us for life, O King, Who delights in life; inscribe us in the Book of Life, for Your own sake, O Lord of life.” Therefore, when His children partake of a life that is worthwhile and pleasing, we thus grant a more pleasing life to our Father in Heaven (HaTzofeh l’Beit Yaacov, page 117, quoting the Kozhnitzer Maggid).
Spiritual Tools-Elul: During Elul and the Days of Awe, use each commandment performed as a way of comforting God, so to speak, insisting that we are using His gift of life to create eternal life.
