Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
Chapter 3 21 and 22
Anyone whose wisdom exceeds his good deeds is likened …to a tree.
It must be noted that this Mishnah does not imply that there is a limit to intellectual achievement. A tree whose root system is fully mature can support continuous growth of its branch structure for as long as the root system remains full and strong. This is true of an individual as well, for once our practice of good deeds is fully established, we have no lack of ability to stand against adversity. At that point, we can develop our Torah knowledge continuously and still be able to cope with all of life’s difficulties.
