Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Emunah channel is here. For Info www.torahfaith.org
In article 30 we read how “Beloved” includes being beloved to G-d as well as beloved to people. Clearly, if one is not beloved to G-d, G-d will not give him His Torah and share with him His wisdom.
One is beloved for the pleasing things he does for another. One makes G-d “happy,” not for what he does, but for what he is. One who is of fine and pleasant character makes G-d happy that He created such a being, and he makes people happy to have him as part of the community. Being close to people and to G-d is reflected by the Torah being close to him, and hence he receives Torah readily.
