ALWAYS REMEMBER …
WRONGS AGAINST OTHER PEOPLE …
ARE WRONGS AGAINST GOD —
Numbers 5:6-7 – When a man or woman commits any wrong toward a fellow man, thus breaking faith with God, and that person realizes his guilt, he shall confess the wrong that he has done.
According to Torah, people were created b’tzelem Elohim, in the image of God. It is the first thing we are told about the first people (Genesis 1:26-27). The verse above, from this week’s portion, helps us to remember how our behavior towards others should reflect our understanding of that early Torah lesson.
