Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
Let the awe of Heaven be upon you!
Our love for HaShem must be allowed to compromise our fear of HaShem. When we love someone our heart is so tightly bound to the one we love that our feelings of fear are dissolved. For example, a person who loves the Holy One will feel happiness when they hear His Name. That joy will nullify any fear, but in fact we should be fearful and alarmed upon hearing His Name. Therefore Antignos says: “Although I have advocated love, do not consider that HaShem, Blessed is He, as your friend with Whom you are familiar; but consider that He is in Heaven and you are on earth.”
The love for HaShem and the fear for HaShem are different aspects of the same thing and therefore they should go hand in hand. In practice, however, it is difficult to feel both love and fear at the same time, and as we develop our love for HaShem, we must reinforce our fear of HaShem as well.
