On Monday I posted about the day’s reading from Micah 6, and now I came across a quote from The Talmud that expands on it.
Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief.
Do justly, now.
Love mercy, now.
Walk humbly, now.
You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.
We can feel overwhelmed at times, so much so that we are paralyzed, not knowing where to begin. As the Talmud suggests, let us, now, begin with what is before us.
