Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
Let your house be open wide
Opening our doors to those who are outside the household brings merit into the home. Neighbors feel comfortable to come in for company or to borrow things. Merchants who pass by will find a welcome at this house as they try to earn a living.
treat the poor as members of your household
Members of the household also bring merit to the home. When we invite the poor into our home regularly, they become like part of the household and can be supported with honor and dignity.
and do not converse excessively with a woman
The third and principle element of the household is one’s wife.
The premise of this mishnah is that a holy person orients his life towards HaShem, and not towards himself. Talking with women is self-centered because men enjoy interaction with women. Therefore a man’s sanctity is maintained by not talking excessively with his wife.
Talking “excessively” means talking without need. Talking with one’s wife as necessary is not all negative.
This program is dedicated in the memory of John Edward Polk Sr.
