Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak

When one is a stranger, they should, whenever they feel lonely, find companionship is HaShem and, in their condition as a stranger, place their trust in Him. They should bear in mind that the soul is also a stranger in this world, and the inhabitants of the earth are like strangers on it, as it says in Scriptures: “For to Me you are strangers and temporary residents” (VaYikra 25:23). They should think of how anyone who has relatives will, in a short while, be left a solitary stranger; neither relative nor child will help them, not one of them will accompany them.
They should also consider that they are freed from the heavy burden of supporting relatives and fulfilling obligations toward them, and regard this as one of the blessings the Creator has bestowed upon them. For if they are busy with secular interests and providing for their own material needs, their labors are lighter without wife or child, and their absence means rest for one self and beneficial to them. And if one is concerned about their latter end, their mind is undoubtedly clearer and freer when one is in a state of solitude.
