This month, many of us will be off on President’s Week or will be taking midwinter vacation.
When we go about our business, we represent Hashem Himself. According to the Rema, on page one, in the very beginning of the Shulchan Aruch, when we wake up in the morning, we should think: “Shivisi Hashem l’negdi tamid,” and place Hashem before us always.
The Rema continues that if a king were in our company, all of our dealings would look different. Since we are in fact children of Hashem, we are enjoined to continuously act as if we are in the presence of the King. A tall order!
This month of Shevat, let us try to bring Hashem some extra nachas. In doing so, we have opened up a s’char savings account that will reap dividends for eternity.
