Educating By Example

283.01Question: Is cruelty and denying a person what he loves and what is very important to him egoistic if it is done for educational purposes?

Answer: It is very hard to give examples of using such educational measures. In order to educate others, you need to set an example.

A teacher of the wisdom of Kabbalah is someone who himself sets an example of discipline, persistence, etc. The only way to educate others is by personal example. In no other way: not with punishment, reward, encouragement, and persuasion. They can be used, but in a very limited way.
