Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Emunah channel is here. For Info www.torahfaith.org
A person who does not understand the affairs of the world thinks that it is the new, created cause that effects change in things and their transformation from one state to another. Actually, the cause is too weak and insignificant to bring about change or transformation in the essence of things. We perceive, for instance, that a single grain of wheat produces three hundred ears of wheat, each of which bears thirty grains, so that a single grain produces ten thousand grains, or nearly that number. Can anyone fail to recognize that the force [inherent] in the grain is insufficient to produce this amount? And so it is with other grains that are sown or planted. The same applies to the generation of a human being and of other living creatures from a drop of semen, or the growth of a large fish from a tiny fish egg.
Preoccupying oneself with advancing what the Creator, May He be exalted, delayed, or delaying what He advanced, or increasing what He diminished, or diminishing what He increased among worldly possessions – if it does not lead to the fulfillment of the duty to serve God and accept His Torah – reflects a lack of recognition of the true nature of His knowledge and ignorance of the beneficence of His government.
