From Rabbi David
Every once in a while I get to hang out with your kiddos and I have the habit of letting them lead me around the school. Wherever they want to go, I follow their lead. I love encouraging their independence and letting them know that I trust them.
Trusting others doesn't come easy for all of us, especially if we've been burnt in the past. In this week's Torah portion, Abraham is challenged to trust God to lead him. Abraham doesn't know exactly where he is going and doesn't have any experience following God - he's literally putting all of his trust in God and this trust leads him to the most wonderful destination - the Promised Land.
Sometimes, it's when we least expect it and when we are most trusting (like being led around by God or a child) that we have the most valuable and memorable journeys.
