Let the Good Fire Burn

Fire of Torah and Good Deeds

Good and Bad Fire

Fire represents passion. There are many things about which we humans can be passionate. Good deeds, prayer, Torah study, family, friends, work, hobbies, etc.

It is important to examine whether our passion is a fire that lights up the world or whether our passion is a fire that burns up our world. If it is a fire that burns up the world, we must learn to put out that fire in our hearts, if it is a fire that lights up the world we must let it increase every day.

I am always fascinated by what seems to be duality in nature and creation. That is, the idea that there can be opposites found within nature and all of creation. For example, as you wrote, fire. Fire has a dual nature. It can bring warmth, but also it can burn us. Depending on how we use the fire it can bring good or harm. I believe the same can be said of the Torah. If we abuse the Torah, we bring destruction to the world. If we utilize it for good, we bring healing to the world.
