Let the Good Fire Burn

By Angelique Sijbolts

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.
