“Therefore, You Will Serve Your Enemies…”

laitman_532Torah, Deuteronomy 28:48: Therefore, you will serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, [when you are] in famine, thirst, destitution, and lacking everything, and he will place an iron yoke upon your neck, until he has destroyed you.

Question: It is unclear why I should serve my enemy “in famine, thirst, destitution, and lacking everything” and not rebel against him.

Answer: This is because you have no power against your enemy, egoism. You are like a rabbit that is moving into the jaws of a boa constrictor, and you are unable to do anything. Egoism defeats you and at the same time shows your insignificance. You are powerless against it because it has control over you, and it demonstrates this.

Moreover, you feel that all this comes from the Creator.

Question: Do I also curse the Creator?

Answer: Naturally. By the way, the Creator does not care about a person’s attitude toward Him. The most important thing is to have some kind of relationship. Even if you curse Him, you are more preferable to Him than one who does not feel and does not address Him.
